HELEN Skelton is one of the top targets for bosses on Strictly Come Dancing this year, we hear.
Show producers hope this might be the year she finally agrees to take part in the full show.
An insider said: “Helen has been on the Strictly wishlist since she did the Christmas special but the timing has never been quite right for her to sign up.
“She relocated to France in 2015 for three years while Richie was playing there and has also taken time out for her three pregnancies.
"There was also the suggestion that Richie wasn’t sure about her taking part.
“But this year, the bosses feel the situation might be different.”
The Countryfile presenter announced last month on Instagram she had split from husband Richie, who plays his club rugby for Leeds Rhinos, and he had left their family home.
