Countryfile viewers thoroughly enjoyed Helen Skelton's 'intimate' female mud wrestling segment

Helen Skelton delighted and surprised Countryfile viewers as she indulged in a spot of mud wrestling during Sunday night's episode.

The presenter of the BBC programme was involved in a piece about the sport filmed in the hills of Cumbria, which saw the 33-year-old fending off tackles from 20-year-old wrestler Connie Hodgson.

The titillating segment saw the former Blue Peter host being shown a variety of moves while caked in mud, including one dubbed the "full buttock".

Helen, a favourite with fans of the landmark rural-based show, was also seen being flipped over Connie's back and onto the ground, dirt smeared across her face, after getting into a position that resembled an embrace.

She even dubbed the entire experience as "quite intimate" due to the closeness of their bodies throughout the sporty exchange.
