Why we love Helen Skelton
Helen Skelton has done things we can only dream of. No, not presenting Newsround (although we would kill – literally murder – for the chance to present Newsround) - we’re talking about the fact that she’s taken on more hardcore athletic/explorey/adventurish challenges than Indiana Jones, Lara Croft and Tintin put together. The blonde beauty has taken on Antarctica, the Amazon and the Namibian desert, and won ever single time – and she has the Guinness world records to show for it. We're pretty much in awe, if we're honest.
Plus: she’s never looked less than drop-dead gorgeous whilst stomping these challenges into the ground. Granted, that time she trekked to the South Pole and didn’t wash for 30 days, she probably didn’t smell too clever – but by jingo, she still looked fit. In both senses of the word.
