BBC Morning Live host Helen Skelton and Channel 5 presenter Dan Walker are teaming up for another travel series. It comes off the back of Dan and Helen's Pennine Adventure, which aired last year and saw the stars scale across the Pennine Mountains.

Sharing the news with a joint statement on Instagram Dan and Helen wrote: "Some lovely news… we are about to start filming a new travel series for @channel5_tv.

"Watch this space for more details. We’ll let you know when you can watch us wandering around together as soon as we can (champagne optional)."

The post was quickly flooded with messages from delighted fans as one wrote: "Oooh fab. Loved your last series together," while another added: "Oh yes that’s made mine and my husbands evening! Our fav people walking round our fav place, can’t wait!"

A third commented: "Yes yes Dan and Helen this is the best news ever I really really enjoyed the first series @mrdanwalker and @helenskelton. And I cannot wait to see what you both get up to. Sending lots of love to you both."

Dan and Helen's first series in the Pennine Mountains saw the pair cycle along Snake Pass and canoe along Standedge, camp without tents near Keighley, and visit Ilkley Moor. They also tried the high-adrenaline activity hydrospeeding.

The announcement comes after Dan urged fans to speak up if they wanted a second series. He told them: "Your comments have really been so kind and encouraging throughout the series and I have sent lots of them through to the teams at WAG and Channel 5. We’d love to make a second series somewhere else so make sure you let Channel 5 know if you want another one."
