Just before the baby was born Helen was presenting Channel 5’s Winter On The Farm and it had seemed possible she could have gone into labour while the show was on.
She joked: “Both my sons were early so I certainly don’t want to be giving birth live on TV but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.
“If you are going to be going into labour on a farm at least you know you are in safe hands. The farmers have plenty of experience delivering babies.
“I know there’s a big difference between babies and lambs but it’s all the same principle. Although I did ask for Shona the vet to be in my rider!”The star had feared she would go into labour during Winter on the Farm[/caption]
