The Countryfile presenter, 38, appeared on Monday's episode of Lorraine where she revealed her mother Janet is currently helping her out with her and Richie's three children Ernie, seven, and Louis, five and baby Elsie, six months.

Lorraine began the interview by saying: 'Helen, it's so good to see you. You've had a bit of a rough time, I know. But the best way to get over stuff is to just get out there again - out there working.' 

Helen responded: 'I think anybody in my position would say the same,' as her dogs began to bark in the background. 'I've got three small children and a very loud dog as you can hear.'

Turning to her dog, Helen said: 'Stop it! They time it perfectly, don't they?!'

Lorraine replied: 'It's fine. Kids and dogs and all that, your life is like that, it really is. And you're used to the chaos! So you're my kind of woman, you put on a brave face and you're back out doing the series- '

Helen then abruptly vanished from the screen to deal with her dog.

When she returned, she said: 'It's uncharacteristically calm around here this morning because I'm working this week.

'My mum has come to stay for the week, because she doesn't live near, so she's got the kids off to school.
