HELEN Skelton looked incredible as she stripped down to a bikini ahead of her Strictly appearance.
It comes after earlier this week The Sun exclusively revealed that the TV presenter, 37, will be one of the celebrities taking part in this year’s series of the BBC show.
But before training gets underway, Helen has been enjoying some quality time with her children Ernie, six, Louis, five and Elsie Kate, seven months on holiday.
They have been busy having lots of fun with their cousins during the school holidays, and yesterday they did a spot of paddle boarding.
Helen shared a stunning snap on the board in a navy bikini and matching sunglasses.

The former Blue Peter presenter looked incredible after welcoming her third child into the world in December.
She said: “Paddle to the pub. Our kind of night ❤️🥰🛶☀️🏔 #lakes #paddle #summer.”
Last week Helen shared another sizzling snap of her having fun in a swimming pool with her daughter.
The mum-of-three wowed in a black and white gingham swimming costume and black sunglasses.
Some think that the star also took a thinly-veiled swipe at her ex Richie while on holiday.

She also posted a supportive message for new mums, like herself, eight months after welcoming daughter Elsie Kate.
“It takes 18-24 months to recover fully from having a baby,” it read.
“If you feel like you’re ‘behind’ or ‘not where you want to be’ at 11 weeks or 6 months postpartum, just remember that you’re not.”
Richie recently posted a selection of pics from his and Stephanie’s holiday to Padstow in Cornwall.
The new couple went public just weeks after Richie and Helen’s split.
In one picture the couple had huge smiles on their faces as they cuddled in front of the camera.
Another showed the sportsman jumping into the sea, and the third was a beautiful shot of the sun shining in the sky.
Richie captioned the post: “Cornwall was worth a 32 year wait,” with a love heart and a sun emoji.
In April, Helen revealed she and Richie had split in an emotional social media post, she said: “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children.”
She ended the post with two broken heart emojis.
Earlier this week it was revealed that Helen has signed up to Strictly in a hope to “bounce back” from her shock marriage break up.
A source said: “It’s the perfect way to bounce back.
“Most people are absolutely desperate to avoid the Strictly curse but Helen would love it to give her some confidence back.
