HELEN Skelton has insisted she’ll juggle Strictly Come Dancing with looking after her three children.
She told the Mirror: “People keep saying, ‘You’ve got kids, how are you going to juggle it?’
“Most mums go to work and any mum who gets a chance to go to work and have their make-up done, their tea made and they learn something fun, that’s a gift, isn’t it? That’s why I wanted to do it.”
But one concern Helen does have is her dancing ability.
She added: “I can’t dance and I feel sick when I hear the theme tune.”
Pals have told how the former Blue Peter presenter hopes the sparkle of the ballroom show will help her bounce back from the breakdown of her marriage earlier this year.

A source said: “It’s the perfect way to bounce back.
“Most people are absolutely desperate to avoid the Strictly curse but Helen would love it to give her some confidence back.
“She’s a great signing for the show and enormously popular with viewers, especially after what has happened to her lately.
“Everyone on the inside thinks she could end up going a very long way.”
