Helen Skelton quits her BBC Radio 5 Live show, saying, “It’s hard to juggle everything.”

Helen Skelton said on her BBC Radio 5 Live show on Sunday that it would be her last show because she wants to spend more time with her kids.

Last year, Laura Whitmore’s Sunday mid-morning spot on the station was taken over by Skelton.

She said that she didn’t want to go, but that an eight-year-old would be happy.

When asked how she felt about it, she said, “I’m not okay with it, but you know, needs must. It’s not a trick. A child who is eight and has a side job needs me.”

The 40-year-old former Blue Peter host has three children who are 8, 6, and 1 years old.

“That’s it for me on Sundays for now,” she said at the end of her show. Thank you for being on this show with me for the past year, I’ve loved every minute of it…

“Thanks to everyone on the team, thanks to everyone. We might see each other again soon. It’s hard to know what to say without getting too upset.”

“Great news!”
Last year, Skelton made it to the final of Strictly Come Dancing. He is also a co-host on BBC One’s Morning Live, Channel 5’s On the Farm, and Channel 4’s rugby league coverage.

She has also co-hosted the BBC show Countryfile. On Tuesday, she and Dan Walker will start a new show on Channel 5 called Dan & Helen’s Pennine Adventure.

Last week, Skelton is said to have taken down Instagram posts of her wearing clothes and jewelry after being told that BBC rules say reporters can’t promote brands.

After hearing that she was leaving, a BBC representative said, “Helen is a great presenter who has done a great job hosting Sunday mornings.

“We understand her choice and hope to work with her in the future on 5 Live programming.

“As for what’s next for Sunday mornings, we’ll let our listeners know as soon as we have some exciting news.”
