Strictly Come Dancing bosses must have censors ready when Helen Skelton appears on screen as she tends to say “naughty things”, her co-star has warned.

Helen has been confirmed as the final celebrity contestant in the all-star cast, joining stars including EastEnders actor James Bye and singer Fleur East.

Ahead of her ballroom debut next month, fellow Summer On The Farm host Martin Hughes-Games has revealed her speech could cause problems.

“It’s a bit dodgy working with Helen,” Martin spilled. “She’s a sure pair of hands but needs a bit of restraint because she tends to be a bit wild.”

He added The sun: “We have someone from Channel 5 Compliance on the set in South Yorkshire telling her not to say too many rude things.

“Although, of course, there’s always the possibility that she might.”

Helen, who split from husband Richie Myler in April after nine years of marriage, said she’s really looking forward to “immersing herself in a fun adventure.”

“My family and friends have always loved the show and can’t wait for me to get started,” she added.

Speaking on Claudia Winkleman’s BBC Radio 2 show, Helen revealed that she had only recently agreed to do the show but said she was keen to sign up after taking part in the 2012 Christmas special.

“Who gets to go to work and look a little like Beyonce and have a fun time?” she told the program.

“Well, I just thought, that’s insane not to do it, of course I should. It’s going to be so much fun.”

The 20th series will see audiences return to the studio, with the opening show set to be taped on September 7th.
