A source told The Mirror: ‘Helen is more in demand than ever and ITV were delighted to land her.’

On her new gig and the importance on having time to herself, Helen said: ‘I took up golf last year to carve out some me time. Spending time in and among greenery is definitely good for me. Fresh air and good views always make me feel better. 

‘I love water too, so a walk by the lake or in the woods is good for me. My boys are the same. If they’re happy, I am. I try to be grateful – and am lucky that work is often enjoyable, so I feel like work is sometimes ‘me time’.

A source told The Mirror that signing up for Strictly would give her a lift, adding: ‘The breakdown of any marriage is tough to cope with, and Helen has understandably found it difficult. Being on Strictly will ­undoubtedly restore her confidence.’

Speaking about the glamorous side of Strictly, Helen said: ‘Most mums go to work and any mum who gets the chance to gets to go to work have their makeup done, their tea made and learn something fun… I thought that’s a gift isn’t it?’ 

The Countryfile presenter revealed on her first BBC Radio 5 show since the announcement: ‘The thing that makes me nervous… I agreed to it a few days ago and people keep saying, ‘Can you dance?’ 

‘And I say no because isn’t it the point to learn to dance?’
