Helen Skelton ‘terrified’ as she and Strictly co-stars dodge ‘bottles thrown’ on night out | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Helen Skelton, 39, is currently travelling across the UK with her Strictly Come Dancing co-stars for the live tour, with the group enjoying a night out in Leeds on Friday. However, it has been reported the Countryfile star was left “shocked” and “running for cover” as the group stumbled across a street fight where “bottles were thrown”.
Helen had been enjoying a night in the West Yorkshire city with her co-stars, who are currently performing for fans in various UK cities.
However, things turned sour when a man appeared to launch a bottle in Helen’s direction, leaving her to seek refuge in an alleyway alongside her pals, with images being obtained by The Sun.
Helen was out with a Strictly backing dancer, alongside Ellie Simmonds, Tyler West, Molly Rainford and Neil Jones.
In the snaps, Helen could be seen looking visibly shocked with the bottle very close to her feet following the incident.

The tour runs until the end of May, visiting cities such as London, Newcastle, Birmingham, Sheffield and Belfast.
Her original dance partner, Gorka Marquez, did not participate in the live tour as he wanted to spend more time with his fiancée, Gemma Atkinson, and their daughter.
Gemma also announced in recent weeks that she and Gorka are expecting their second child.
Helen is also mother to sons Ernie, seven, and Louis, five, with Richie Myler, 32, whom she split from in April 2022 following a nine-year marriage.
He called it quits on their marriage four months after she gave birth to their third child, Elsie Kate.
