Helen Skelton bids farewell to Blue Peter with a yomp
Helen Skelton is bowing out of Blue Peter after more than five years on the show, but not before attempting a final challenge.
The presenter, who leaves tomorrow, has canoed down the Amazon, walked a high-wire between the chimneys of Battersea Power Station and travelled 500 miles across Antarctica during her stint on the long-running children's show.
And before she goes viewers will see her attempt the Royal Marines Yomp – a 30-mile march across Dartmoor with a 32lb backpack that has to be completed in under eight hours.
Skelton, who recently signed up as a presenter for BT Sport, will be replaced by CBBC colleague Radzi Chinyanganya.

Chinyanganya has been a reporter for Match Of The Day Kickabout and he is also a presenter of Saturday morning show Wild.
