Helen Skelton strips to bikini as she jumps in freezing river with Dan Walker

Helen Skelton showcased her enviable figure as she slipped into a bikini for a freezing cold dip alongside her co-star and close friend Dan Walker.

The latest instalment of Dan & Helen's Pennine Adventure saw the duo travel up the 'Backbone of Britain' from Dan's home in Sheffield up to Helen's home in Cumbria, discovering the real Pennines along the way.

During the third episode of the Channel 5 series, which aired on Tuesday (August 29), the TV presenters abseiled 100 metres into one of the Yorkshire Dale's deepest caves and enjoyed a picnic at Pendragon Castle.

As Helen and Dan travelled across the Yorkshire Dales, they stopped at a river and decided to have a quick swim in the cold water.

Despite the chilly weather, the 40-year-old wasted no time stripping to the leopard print two piece as she prepared to take a dip with her co-star.

The former BBC Breakfast star, 46, was the first to take the plunge wearing a pair of blue swimming trunks before Helen quickly followed.

Lowering her shoulders under the water, the former Strictly Come Dancing star yelled: "It's freezing!"

It comes reports emerged that Helen has divorced her husband Richie Myler 16 months after their split.

The Countryfile star, who announced her split in April last year, shares three children, Ernie, eight, Louis, five, and 16-month-old daughter with the rugby player.
