Helen Skelton is enjoying a well-deserved winter break with her family after waltzing across the UK on the Strictly Come Dancing tour and, frankly, she’s glowing. 

The Countryfile presenter has had a busy schedule the past few weeks after joining her Strictly partner Kai Widdrington (instead of Gorka Marquez) on the road, waltzing, jiving and salsaing all over the country. 

With the chaotic tour wrapping up last week, Helen, 39, is making the most of her free time by flying off to the Canary Islands with her three children, Ernie, Louis and baby Elsie, who she shares with ex-husband Richie Myler. 

Updating her Instagram followers on her travels, the TV star shared a set of sun-kissed photos of her basking in the warm climes with her brood. 

Quite adorably, Helen matched her blue two-piece gingham bikini to baby Elsie’s, with the one-year-old wearing a light blue swimsuit version. 

In another sweet shot, Elsie is seen flashing a big smile beside the pool before enjoying a splash, while Ernie and Louis were already in the water and larking around with other children.

Helen wrote in the caption: ‘Pool days ❤️Grateful for this time. Grateful for this gang. Brought my tribe away to meet up with the fam on their hols … three adults nine kids what could go wrong 😳🥰😍🤪 … these are the days 🥰🥰. 

‘Can’t thank @thbhotels @onthebeachholidays enough … I have booked through them and stayed here a few times before so feeling very lucky that me and my three are back as their guests. #gifted #thankyou #grateful #familytime #mypriorities #canaries #onthebeach.’

Helen gave her last performance on the Strictly tour on February 12 in Glasgow after shows in cities such as Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle and London, where the cast hit the stage across three nights at the O2 Arena. 

The Blue Peter star hailed her journey on the show as ‘the adventure of a lifetime.’

‘I’m really looking forward to seeing the fans across the country and performing my favourite dances from the series. I can’t wait,’ she said. 

However, it was a bit of a change for Helen as she wasn’t joined by her original Strictly partner Gorka, and instead performed with new pro Kai, as Gorka was busy with other commitments.
