Helen Skelton was left red-faced in an awkward exchange with her co-star during ‘cheese tossing’ segment on live TV. 

The Country Life presenter, 38, was joined by Martin Hughes-Games from Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley to introduce the game for Channel 5’s Summer on the Farm.

Speaking on the show, Helen began: ‘So far this week, we’ve had hay bale flipping, caber tossing, we’ve even had knife throwing.’

Oh no! Helen Skelton, 38, was left red-faced in an awkward exchange with her co-star during a ‘cheese tossing’ segment on live TV 

‘But tonight we are going one better, we’re going to be tossing cheese.’

As she picked up the ‘heavy’ piece of cheese, Martin quickly interjected, taking it from Helen and flipping it around. 

‘Turn it around so they can see the front,’ he quipped, and then added ‘be professional.’

The blunt exchange ended with Helen awkwardly smiling as she replied with ‘ok’ before going on to explain the rules of the game. 

It comes after Helen admitted that her life is currently ‘chaos’ as she addressed her split from husband Richie. 

The presenter appeared on Monday’s episode of Lorraine where she revealed her mother Janet is currently helping her out with her and Richie’s three children Ernie, seven, and Louis, five and baby Elsie, six months.

Lorraine began the interview by saying: ‘Helen, it’s so good to see you. You’ve had a bit of a rough time, I know. But the best way to get over stuff is to just get out there again – out there working.’ 

Helen responded: ‘I think anybody in my position would say the same,’ as her dogs began to bark in the background. ‘I’ve got three small children and a very loud dog as you can hear.’

Turning to her dog, Helen said: ‘Stop it! They time it perfectly, don’t they?!’

Lorraine replied: ‘It’s fine. Kids and dogs and all that, your life is like that, it really is. And you’re used to the chaos! So you’re my kind of woman, you put on a brave face and you’re back out doing the series-‘

Helen split from husband Richie, 31, in April after eight years of marriage.

The break up came just four months after the arrival of the couple’s third child Elsie.

Helen is said to feel ‘bewildered’ by the breakdown of her marriage to Richie whose new partner is Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

A source close to the couple told MailOnline: ‘Helen is absolutely devastated. Now she is contemplating life without him while he has moved on with his new partner.’

‘Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married, and their baby is literally four months old.
