Helen Skelton reflects on Blue Peter career

Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton is to leave the show after appearing on it for five years.

During that time Helen has kayaked down the Amazon, walked across a high-wire between the chimneys of Battersea power station, and trekked across Antarctica.

Despite recently signing up as a presenter for BT Sport, Helen told BBC Breakfast that her decision to leave Blue Peter was "gut wrenching".

Blue Peter is on CBBC at 5.30pm
