Yet with the show still weeks away, the mum of three is back to her day-job.
She was seen strolling in the sunshine in her trendy light-wash one-piece, which tied at the stomach.
The high collar gave a sassy edge and Helen tied her blonde hair up to stay cool in the heat.
Her work pass was slung around her neck and she carried a script in her hand as she prepared to present Channel 4‘s rugby league coverage in Manchester.
Helen was all set to cover the Salford Red Devils match after starring on Claudia’s Radio 2 show.
She said after the news was confirmed on Claudia‘s show: “I’m really excited to get stuck into a fun adventure.
“My family and friends have always loved the show and can’t wait for me to get started.”
A source told The Sun: “Most people are absolutely desperate to avoid the Strictly curse but Helen would love it to give her some confidence back.
“She’s a great signing for the show and enormously popular with viewers, especially after what has happened to her lately.
“Everyone on the inside thinks she could end up going a very long way.”
Helen started her TV career in children’s television, presenting Newsround and Blue Peter on the BBC.
She went on to front Countryfile, Channel 5’s On The Farm series and is a regular on ITV Tonight.
The Sun revealed the full line-up of Strictly Come Dancing – including Helen – yesterday morning.
Coronation Street favourites Will Mellor and Kym Marsh will also take to the dance floor this year.
Bookies Ladbrokes has now revealed Helen has rocketed into the second-favourite spot to take the Glitter Ball.
She has odds of 6-1, shortly behind favourite Fleur at 7-2.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Helen Skelton has instantly attracted money to win the Glitterball Trophy after she was the final name added to the Strictly line-up.
“She is now second favourite, with just Fleur East considered her biggest competition.”
