Christmas on the Farm: Helen Skelton carried out final job ahead of due date on New Year's Eve

Helen Skelton is carrying out her final job of the year tonight before she is due to give birth on New Year's Eve.

The Yorkshire TV star, who is married to rugby league player Richie Myler, will join Jules Hudson from Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire for a festive special.

The pair will be joined around the tree by Nicholson brothers Rob and Dave from Cannon Hall Farm, plus special guests including JB Gill, stars from The Yorkshire Vet and Reuben Owen from Our Yorkshire Farm.The show is produced by Leeds-based Daisybeck Studios, and Helen said it's one of the reasons why she has worked so late into her pregnancy.
