This isn't the first time the presenter has braved the chilly waters this summer. Earlier this month, Helen stepped out to enjoy an outdoor swimming session with her adorable seven-month-old daughter Elsie.

Taking to Instagram the BBC presenter treated her fans to a joyous photo of the duo playing at the lido. Ever the trendsetter, the mum-of-three donned a gorgeous gingham navy swimsuit which did well to accentuate her gym-honed figure.

She teamed her nautical number with a pair of black wayfarer sunglasses and some delicate jewellery. Prepped for the pool, Helen styled her blonde tresses into an elegant low ponytail.

The blonde stunner appeared to be in high spirits as she swooped her seven-month-old daughter into the air. She captioned her post: "You wouldn't believe it but it’s Cumbria. Hands up if you're from the Eden Valley and spent your summers in an unheated outdoor pool??"

Helen has been making the most of her summer

Helen shares her three young children with her ex-husband Richie Myler, 32. The duo went their separate ways in April after eight years of marriage.

The presenter confirmed their separation in a short statement on Instagram: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children." Since the news, Helen has been spotted out and about enjoying life as a single mum surrounded by her adoring family and friends.
