Though it hasn’t been officially announced yet, the star has reportedly signed up to the popular dance series in an effort to rekindle her love life after splitting from her husband earlier this year.
A source close to Miss Skelton told the Daily Mail: ‘This is the exact opposite of the Strictly curse. Helen has already lost the love of her life, now she wants to find a new one.
“She can’t wait to get completely absorbed in it, she’s been through some of the toughest times, so this is going to open so many doors for her.

Negotiations have been going on for some time, but the BBC are delighted that they have managed to get Helen on board. They think it’s going to be great, and so does Helen.
“She’s going to make the most of it and enjoy it.”
The BBC declined to comment on the signing on Monday, but is expected to make the announcement on Friday.
It’s over: The star, who was devastated earlier this year when her husband Richie Myler ended their eight-year marriage, is said to be “super excited” at the prospect of finding a partner on the show
In April, Helen revealed that she and rugby player Richie, 31, had split up after he moved out of their home.
She wrote on Instagram: “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the parental home. We will do our best to co-parent our little children.”
Neither Helen nor Richie said the reason behind the split.
Shortly afterwards, it was revealed that the sports star was dating Stephanie Thirkill, 32, whose father Andrew is president of the Leeds Rhinos rugby team he plays for.
