HELEN SKELTON ON...
…moving back to the UK
We lived in France for three years – but we’re setting up back here now. We had a great time. We lived right on the beach, and we loved the lifestyle. But I did miss my parents, and my brother has a little boy, so I didn’t want to miss out on that.
…having a new baby
My baby boy, Louis, is six months, and the older one, Ernie, is two-and-a-half. The first year in France, there wasn’t even one other English-speaking family. That was a bit of a shock to the system! At first, I was like, ‘Wow, this is lonely.’ In hindsight, it was a good opportunity to practise my French!
…the return of Countryfile It’s coming back at Christmas. I think people like it because it’s people doing everyday things. It’s relaxing to watch. …juggling motherhood and her TV career
The team are so supportive! I fit it around the children, and my mum is in charge of the kids while I’m at work. They don’t have a nanny, they have a nana – I am very lucky in that sense.
