TV Star Helen Skelton ‘Groped On Live TV’ While Pregnant

TV’S Helen Skelton has revealed she was groped live on TV while she was pregnant.

The Countryfile host and mum-of-two said a man “grabbed me on the a**e” while she was interviewing him at a sporting event in 2014.

Helen, 34, said: “I felt really awkward about it. I was pregnant as well. I didn’t know what to do.

“It’s intimidating and you don’t want to be the person who is being difficult and awkward.

“That’s just the culture that television breeds.

“You want to bring solutions, not problems. We are all ‘Happy, happy’.”

Helen, who hosted BBC coverage of the 2016 Rio Olympics, declined to name the culprit but said radio presenter Colin Murray reported him.

The mum-of-two added: “He (Colin) kicked off and said that needs dealing with. It was handled brilliantly because of that. I’d never thought about complaining.”

In an interview with The Telegraph, the mum also touched on the #metoo movement, saying that while it was important, it needed some perspective.

She said: “We are getting too wound up about it all and losing the ability to actually change things.”
