Skelton yomps her way out of Blue Peter
The presenter, who leaves today, has canoed down the Amazon, done a high-wire walk between the chimneys of Battersea Power Station and travelled 500 miles across the 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 trek 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 will join the show in mid-October, joining Lindsey Russell and regular host Barney Harwood, who also graduated to the show after becoming a familiar face on CBBC.
