Helen Skelton is reportedly set to remain a staple on our TV screens when the Olympics are over, thanks to a huge new deal with the BBC.

The presenter has hit headlines in recent weeks, thanks to the fact some TV viewers can’t understand why she’s dressing for the Rio weather, but it’s her competency and popularity as a host that has rightly attracted attention and led to the new role.

MailOnline claims that Helen, who also fronts ‘Countryfile’ has “more things in the pipeline” with the Beeb.

A source tells the website: “She has a new prime time BBC series in the pipeline but it’s a secret project.

“‘Countryfile’ is still ongoing. She has a couple more things in the pipeline but nothing else signed off right now.

“She is also the face of Karrimor and is doing a new in store campaign.”

The news comes following claims that Helen might be signing up for ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, as a “last-minute addition” to this year’s line-up.

While Helen is yet to address the unnecessary furore over her recent outfit choices, her husband Richie Myler poked fun at it all on Instagram.

The rugby player posted a photo of the couple’s young son, Ernie, alongside a cheeky caption about the toddler’s clothes.
