Helen Skelton can’t resist dig at Strictly winner Hamza on Christmas On The Farm


HELEN Skelton couldn’t help but take a cheeky swipe at Strictly Come Dancing while hosting Channel 5’s Christmas On The Farm.

The Countryfile presenter made it all the way to the final of this year’s series of the hit BBC dance competition on Saturday with her dance partner Gorka Marquez.

Helen said the bale trophy which was made out of hay meant more to her than the Strictly prize

Helen, 39, and Gorka, 32, performed incredibly well as they ended up getting a perfect 40 score from the judges for their couple’s choice dance to Mein Herr from Cabaret.

But despite their efforts in the dance competition, it wasn’t enough and Hamza Yassin and his dance partner Jowita Przystal were voted the winners by the public – even though they received lower scores.

During an appearance on Channel 5‘s Christmas On The Farm, Helen spoke out about the final and how she felt.

The BBC presenter headed to the Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire with along with her Escape to the Country co-stars Jules Judson and brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson for the festive special.

During the episode, Jules jokingly gave Helen a consolation prize after losing, which was a “glitterbale” trophy made out of hay – as opposed to the ‘glitterball’ Strictly Come Dancing prize.

Jules then asked Helen: “Which is more important, that or the glitterball do you think?”

Helen gave a cheeky grin before she replied: “This means so much more to me!”

She added: “Joking aside, to have the support of you guys… it made it like our journey. Do you know what I mean? It made it our adventure.”

This comes shortly after speculation of a feud between Helen and Hamza as the Strictly finalist raised eyebrows after liking a tweet criticising him.

The TV personality ruffled feathers after making her opinions clear on Twitter about who was the rightful Strictly winner – and it wasn’t her fellow dancer Hamza Yassin.
