TV presenter Helen Skelton reportedly emerges as a top target for this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Countryfile presenter Helen Skelton is reportedly a "top target" for this year's edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 38-year-old - a former co-host of Blue Peter - appeared in the 2012 Christmas special of the show, and according to The Sun, producers are now keen to have her back on board for a full-length series.

The newspaper says that Skelton could be tempted to take part following her recent split from rugby player husband Richie Meyler.

"Helen has been on the Strictly wishlist since she did the Christmas special, but the timing has never been quite right for her to sign up," a source said.

"She relocated to France in 2015 for three years while Richie was playing there and has also taken time out for her three pregnancies.

"But this year, the bosses feel the situation might be different."

Strictly returns for its new series on BBC One in September.
