EXCLUSIVE: Helen Skelton shows off chic in a striped shirt at the Kinder Masters of Play festival — as she details the ‘difficult’ task of being a mother of three
Helen Skelton dressed chic Sunday in a striped shirt at the Kinder Masters of Play festival in London.
The TV presenter, 39, was headlining the festival, which holds workshops for parents and children over the Easter holidays at KidZania.
She looked elegant in a blue and white striped shirt, which she tucked neatly into her jeans.
The former Blue Peter star slicked her blonde hair back into a low ponytail, with strands framing her face in the front for a work day out with the kids, including her own Elsie, Ernie, and Louis.
She wore gold jewelry, including a chain necklace and bracelet, as well as chunky gold hoops.

But despite her put-together appearance, Helen shared that life as a busy mom can be “challenging” and provided motivation to arrange holiday workshops.
Helen said: “As a mother of three, I know how difficult it can be to keep your children entertained, especially during the school holidays.
“The festival helps parents, like myself, discover the skills children can develop through play.”
The festival will take place at KidZania London in Westfield Shepherd’s Bush, London on Sunday 2 April, Monday 3 April and Tuesday 4 April.
The outing comes after Helen shared a candid post about the realities of being a single mom while celebrating Mother’s Day.
The Strictly Come Dancing star shared an adorable post with her brood and mom while celebrating the day.
But also staying true to the matter, she posted a photo of her youngest son, Louis, crouching in a ball on the floor and crying as she wrote that this is “the reality.”
Helen joked that she was “ruining” his life, revealing that the breakdown was along the way she tied his shoelaces.

Helen posted a monochrome family photo to her 468k followers, writing: ‘Happy Mother’s Day. No words needed. ❤️’.
But at the same time, she decided to give a glimpse into everyday life as a mother of three through her stories.
She shared a photo of little Louis squatting at a ball, and wrote: “Reality…..when you’re ‘ruining their lives’ because of the way they tie you with lace.
“Every bit of adventure we call parenting,” she jokes.
Helen has been struggling with work and being a mother since the breakdown of her eight-year marriage to ex-Ritchie in 2022, just months after the birth of their daughter, Elsie.
She announced her split with the rugby league player as he reportedly began a relationship with Stephanie Thirkell, also 32, while married.
