Helen is returning to live television next week on Channel 5

It will be a special week in particular for Helen, as she will be travelling to where she was born, Cumbria, for a special walk in honour of fellwalker Alfred Wainwright.

"Summer on the Farm is a celebration, and hopefully it gives people some 'feel good'. There'll be classic rural activities — we've got knife-making, birdwatching, kayaking, sheep-shearing, hay-baling and beekeeping," she said of the show.

Fans revealed their excitement at the show's return on Twitter, with one writing: "Can't wait to see you all. Good luck Martin, big shoes to fill with Jules, be lovely to see you all and lovely Helen and the boys and animals soooo excited."

A second added: "Very excited for the return of this great programme," whilst a third remarked: "TV has missed Martin, this is going to be awesome!"
