HELEN Skelton’s fans were baffled tonight as she failed to host her show Winter On The Farm.
The Channel 5 hit has been fronted by the Strictly star and Jules Hudson live from Cannon Hall Farm each night.
Helen Skelton wasn’t hosting alongside Jules Hudson tonight
Some viewers were expecting to see her at Cannon Hall Farm.
However, in a change from the billing many viewers had on their TV guides, Helen did not appear.
Instead, the programme began with Julia Bradbury taking over hosting duties on the programme.
One asked: “Is Helen Skelton off sick? I missed the start” and “Where is Helen Skelton?”
In fact, Helen had been given the night off from the series so she could attend late-night rehearsals for Strictly.
The BBC show is airing on Sunday night this week to make way for World Cup football, with the results on Monday evening.
Helen, 39, is paired with Gorka Marquez on the dance series – but he has appeared with her on the farm, too.
She introduced him to a bull the team named after him.
He joked: “He reminds me of me, but stronger, so yeah I’m very pleased that he’s called Gorka.
“I think he’s very sensitive and quiet, like me, wouldn’t you say?”
