Helen Skelton and Dan Walker ask for help as show’s future is ‘uncertain’

Presenters Helen Skelton and Dan Walker have taken to Instagram to urge fans to help them renew their TV series.

Their Channel 5 travel series aired earlier this week and featured them heading off on an adventure in the Pennines. Over four episodes, they explored the stunning Yorkshire countryside and challenging activities.

Fans have raved about the series, with some saying the pair were a “breath of fresh air” and others asking whether the show would return. The Mirror reports that the former Strictly Come Dancing stars have spoken out and said viewers will have to reach out to Channel 5 for that to happen.

Helen and Dan said: “Your comments have really been so kind and encouraging throughout the series and I have sent lots of them through to the teams at WAG & Channel 5. We’d love to make a second series somewhere else so make sure you let Channel 5 know if you want another one.

“Thanks to everyone who we spoke to & met along the way, thanks to the wonderful team who worked on it and thank you for watching.”

One Fan said: “Loved this series, you and Helen compliment each other so well. You have to be on again.” A second wrote: “Thank you again to everyone involved in bringing us such a joyous watch. Please, please, please come back with another series.”

“A wonderful and enjoyable programme to watch. Loved all the challenges and adventures you both did. Hope they’ll be another series at some point,” added a third. While a fourth commented: “Loved the friendship & the laughs you had along the way! Please do another series! It was amazing to watch!”

Helen and Dan became close friends after starring on Strictly in 2021. Helen previously opened up about their friendship and said: “Dan and I always have a laugh. We find the same situations funny. We both love the Pennines and we both like walking, so it was ‘Shall we just go and do a bit of that for telly?’ It was just a really nice opportunity to work with a friend and to celebrate a nice part of the world.”

Dan said: “We’ve known each other for over a decade, so when the opportunity came up and they said ‘We’d like to make a travelogue’ I loved the idea of working with Helen,” he explained. “We’d never done it before but we’re really good friends. Then I rang Helen about it. I know she gets loads of offers to do things all the time but for me it was the opportunity to work with her and to make a programme about a place that we’re both really passionate about.

“As Helen says, we’ve always had the same sense of humour but we also really like talking to people, understanding what makes them tick and why they do what they do. When you get the two of us together we can chat forever with each other but also with anybody that we meet along the way. Hopefully that’s what comes across in the programme.” Dan also said: “There were a few tears along the way, but mostly you have a nice hug, then you crack on.”
