Helen Skelton: Countryfile star shares concerning pics of smashed up car on trip with son

Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton, 36, took to her Instagram story to explain the reason behind her adventurous day out with one of her sons, which seemingly ended in chaos. At first, the television host shared a video of her sitting in her car as her son slept in the background.

Well this day turned south quickly

She then said to the camera: “I hate talking on here which is ridiculous because I talk out loud for a living, but Sabrina Grant said I had to explain my pictures more and I’ve got a chance because he’s asleep.

“I’ve just posted a load pictures of some stoves that I love, partly because once upon a time I went to the South Pole. Who knew?

“One of the greatest adventurers ever took a certain brand of stove to the South Pole and that’s the kind of stove I’m looking at potentially buying.

“That’s why I was in a factory in Lancashire with my son, justifying an investment to my husband in the name of an adventurous spirit and installing that into our kids.”

She then cheekily said to the camera: “Can I get a way with that, do you think?”

Helen followed up her post with a snap of her car boot window smashed into pieces.

She captioned the post: “Well this day turned south quickly.”

The mother-of-two shared another picture of shattered glass above her son’s car seat.

She commented: “Wasn’t really going for an effect on the glass above my son’s head,” followed by a crying face emoji.

The presenter is yet to explain publicly how the accident happened. Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Helen for comment.

Hours after the posts on her Instagram story, the Countryfile star shared a picture of her son standing by a tree.

She captioned the post: “Sun and fresh air. Normally we make small talk with everyone but things feel very different at the minute.

“#staysafe #staypositive #family #gratitude #staycalm.”

Helen was seemingly referencing the current coronavirus outbreak which has affected thousands of people globally.
