Helen took to her Instagram Stories, where she linked to her fellow competitor Inci Mehmet's account, where a video of the star swinging her club was captioned: "An absolute god of a woman!" Helen Skelton learned the game 6 months ago and now lighting it up... whilst preggers!"

The sporty star is expecting her third child 

"I'd been out for a walk with Ernie in the pram and when I arrived back home I was getting a few pains," she explained.

"At first I thought it was because I'd been out for a long walk but then I could hardly move. I phoned Rich to say, 'I think you need to get to the airport as I’m in labour.' As I’d been two days in labour with Ernie, I didn’t realise it was going to be so quick. But within an hour of calling Rich, I couldn’t get up off the floor."

Richie added: "I am really proud of her for doing it on her own. I know she must have been scared but she will never admit it!".

Congratulations Helen and Richie!
