The year-old - who also sparked an online frenzy over the summer after she hosted the Olympics swimming coverage in an array of "revealing" outfits - laughed off the old school video, with her insisting that she found the whole thing "hilarious". I found the whole thing hilarious. It was creepy in one sense. So it was nothing unusual for me to do it back then. Her comments come after Helen was filmed topless on a beach, with the video ending up on an adult website and immediately racking up thousands of hits. The former Blue Peter host could be seen wearing just a pair of shorts, with sources claiming she had no idea that she was being filmed. She was enjoying her holiday and relaxing in the sun.
Images purportedly showing Skelton on holiday in France surfaced over the weekend and appeared in a Sunday newspaper. Skelton, a former Blue Peter anchor who has also presented the European Swimming Championships, was sat with her co-presenters Rebecca Adlington and Mark Foster during the broadcast. All three were dressed appropriately for the humid weather in Rio. Meanwhile, Gary Lineker fulfilled a promise he made to present Match of the Day in his underwear after losing a bet months ago. Reports have since emerged that Skelton would be filing a complaint with the press watchdog Ipso. Laura Bates, the founder of Everyday Sexism, condemned the publication of the images in an essay for the International Business Times. Bates said the media's treatment of Skelton was indicative of the wider problem of the representation of women in the media.
Twitter has rallied to the defence of Helen Skelton after a Sunday newspaper published images of her aged 17 and topless. This is a complete nightmare for Helen. She is really keen to be taken seriously as a presenter. HelenSkelton sunbathe topless… So what? Is it a crime to have a pair of breasts?
The year-old mum of one was holidaying in France in and believed to be unaware that she was being filmed and ONLY 17 at the time. The four-minute-clip has since made its way onto a number of porn sites and shows Helen working on her tan in just a pair of shorts. So what? Is it a crime to have a pair of breasts?
