In a recent appearance on Lorraine, Helen was asked how she balances, "me time and work".

Helen replied: "Of course I struggle. I lump work into 'me time'. Not everyone does Strictly for their work. For me, lower the standards. My kids don't always go to school in fully ironed school uniforms sometimes. Delegate!"
