Countryfile and This Week on the Farm presenter Helen Skelton, 36, seemed disappointed as she told viewers her husband Richie Myler, 30, bought her a torch as an anniversary gift last year.

In a recent episode of This Week on the Farm, two farmers revealed they had bought 14 pedigree cows for their father to mark his farming anniversary.

When the camera panned over to Helen, she revealed what her husband had bought her for their anniversary last year.

She said: “What a lovely thing to do for his anniversary!

“What an anniversary gift, I think for my last anniversary, I got a torch. Mind you, I’m not entirely sure where I’d put 14 cows.”

The presenter tied the knot with rugby star Richie back in 2013.

The couple share two children together; Ernie, five, and three-year-old Louis.

Helen has been giving fans an insight into her family antics during lockdown on Instagram.

Yesterday, she shared pictures of their sons enjoying one of the hottest days of the year in a swimming pool.

Earlier this week, she revealed how her spouse and other disruptions delayed her filming for the show from home.

Taking to her Instagram story, she said she was looking for somewhere quiet to film with a camera man.

Addressing a banging noise which could be heard in the background, she explained: “That banging, is the sound of my husband building a hog roast in what is meant to be my office.

“So because we are all filming from home, I’m filming this week’s On The Farm for Channel 5, anyway, I thought I’d do nice, lovely, quiet links from my garden until my husband started erecting massive scaffolding.”

She added: “Also a typical day is finding the butcher in the garden, that’s the kind of thing that happens.”

Helen is no stranger to opening up about her family life.

Last month, she revealed what is was like to leave her spouse in charge of the home and children for the first time, while she competed on the latest series of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Speaking to Louise Minchin and Annie Emmerson on their podcast Her Spirit, she said: “I’m in charge and I do all the parenting, he’s a hands-on dad, but do you what I mean? I’m the one who does breakfast, dinner and tea and all the rest of it.

“To leave him in charge for a week, was a bit of… we needed to do it, it was good for both of us.

“And it’s made him appreciate me and in the same way, and this makes him sound bad but I don’t mean it like that, it’s just very easy if you’re the one going out to work, to come in and go, ‘Have you not cleaned up the breakfast dishes yet?’

“And you’re the mum whose been spending time with the kids all day, it makes you want to punch them.

“You’re like, ‘What?! Never mind the breakfast dishes, I haven’t been for a pee by myself’.

“It’s been really good because he now gets that.”
