Countryfile presenter and Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins star Helen Skelton, 36, has shared a video on Instagram to detail a moment which left her in tears while out shopping today. She told her fans she had cried during her trip after a shop worker told her how much they are missing their grandchildren during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Speaking from her car, The presenter told fans: “If you are lucky enough to have good grandparents in your children’s life, please do me a favour and just tell them that you appreciate them.

“I just had a little… is it normal to cry when you’re getting your supermarket groceries? Probably not, but at the minute yeah.

“The lady behind the counter was telling me how much she misses her grandchildren and how they often normally stay at her house and how obviously none of that is happening.

“I am so lucky that my kids have got good grandparents and I hope they know much I value and appreciate them.”

She said: “I had to fight Nikki and that was tough because I really like her.

“She hit me a lot and I only hit her a couple of times, but when I did she was like, ‘Oh my God, I think you’ve broken my nose’.

“It’s so weird having to fight someone you like, I didn’t want to hit her, then she hit me once and I was like, ‘OK!’”

Expressing her fears about a particular moment, she added to The Sun: “I remember we were carrying these ridiculously heavy backpacks up a hill and Ant was screaming at us that there would be a consequence if we didn’t get up the hill.

“That really weighed heavily on me. I was constantly thinking that if I get injured then it could impact my kids.”

Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins continues Monday on Channel 4 at 9pm.
