The presenter captioned the post: "The Juicy [email protected] energy kick hit the system today. Yaaaayyyy. x.loving it."

Countryfile star Helen was quick to compliment the presenter with a fire emoji, prompting Carol to made the shock announcement, as she thanked Helen for her compliment.

Carol replied: "Looking forward to you winning Strictly missus x."

Although rumours have circulated of Helen's appearance, nothing has been officially confirmed by the BBC show as of yet.

A source previously revealed: "This is quite the opposite of the Strictly curse. Helen has already lost the love of her life, now she wants to find a new one.

"She cannot wait to get stuck into it all, she has been through the most difficult of times, so this is going to open so many doors for her.

"The 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 is going to make the best of this, and enjoy it," the source concluded to the Daily Mail.

The BBC yesterday refused to comment on the signing and is reported to be making an announcement on Friday (August 12).

It comes after Janet Street-Porter called Helen "needy" on Loose Women after hearing the speculation. .

Janet said: "Helen Skelton said this, that she’s looking for love on a TV show."

To which Coleen replied: "She’s talking about the Strictly curse. And good on her, if I ever get Strictly and that curse doesn’t hit me, I’m voting myself off."

Janet added: "It just makes me anxious for her that she’s revealed too much, she sounds too needy.

"The last place I would look for love would be on a TV show. Most people are absolutely desperate to avoid the Strictly curse but Helen would love it to give her some confidence back."
