The 35-year-old Countryfile favourite revealed she had acted as an extra on Coronation Street when she was younger when her career ambitions were different.

“I’ve always been fascinated by telly production,” she told Express.co.uk. “And I wanted to be a cameraman/camerawoman for a long long time.

“So ,when I was a student I used to go and be an extra on set, just so that I could see how everything worked really,” Helen Skelton continued.

“It was fascinating because my mum loves Coronation Street, so she loved that.

“I was in the Rovers loads of times, so you just sit and drink grape juice, which they obviously put in there as wine.

“I had to stand next to Hayley Cropper [played buy Julie Hesmondhalgh] a few times, so that was good,” she recalled.

However, Helen insisted she wouldn’t be returning to life as a soap across, saying: “Oh god, no. I can’t act — I just stood around in the background.

“I literally just stood around and tried not to look at the camera.”

Helen is currently supporting the P&G #HelpUsHelpThem campaign in order to raise funds for The Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland.

Speaking about the campaign, she said: “I think as a nation we’re rightly proud of our Armed Forces community and I think people are aware now of how much support people need coming out of the other side, on the other side of their career.”

Helen Skelton will be supporting P&G and Sainsbury's #HelpUsHelpThem campaign raising funds for The Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland. From October 10 to November 20, Sainsbury's shoppers can buy selected P&G Health & Beauty products including Oral B, Olay, Gillette & Pantene in store or online and trigger a donation. 1 pack = 1 donation.
