While presenting Channel 5’s Winter on the Farm Live, Helen Skelton was enjoying petting a “wonky donkey” while the camera showed footage of a ram which had been picked out by farming brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson, when a loud scream could be heard. The cameras cut back to the presenter and co-host Julian Norton as she tried to prize her hand away from the donkey’s mouth. She was later seen being treated by doctor Amir Khan, who had been appearing as a guest.

While discussing the ram chosen by Rob and Dave, Helen commented over the footage: “We can have a little look now, here they look pretty happy and healthy.”

Dave added: “It’s a great ram. We think we’ve got the best ram in Europe there.

“We think he’s going to be a real asset to -“

Before Dave could finish though, he was interrupted by a loud shriek. 

“It’s the donkey!” the presenter yelled as the cameras turned to her.

Dave quickly showed the animal away as Helen winced in pain.

Laughing, co-host Jules remarked: “There you go, just shows that we are live and things bite, we are on a farm!”

“I liked you, wonky donkey,” Helen exclaimed, looking stunned.

Trying to move on to the next segment, she continued: “You’re miles from home and there are no taxis, but what do you do?

“Well as Rob and Dave found out, the stars can guide you home with a little bit of help-“

She paused again, asking: “Why is this donkey biting my bum?” as one of the animals had edged towards the fence trying to bite her again.

She carried on: “The stars can help you out with a little bit of help from the author of the natural navigator, Tristan Gooley.”

Later on, doctor Amir Khan, who was appearing on the show as a guest, was taking a look at Helen’s hand as Jules presented.

“Well thank goodness we have a doctor in the house tonight of all nights,” he laughed.

Taking to Twitter after the show, Winter on the Farm’s official page addressed the comical moment and updated viewers on Helen.

A post read: “Thanks for spending another evening on the farm with us! We’ll leave you tonight with this clip of Wonky Donkey having a little nibble of @HelenSkelton (Helen is completely fine!)

“See you again tomorrow! @thejuleshudson @RobNicholsonCHF.”

Responding, Twitter user Darrell wrote: “Best opening to a show in years.”

Hollie Arnold penned: “Cheeky wonky! Moral of the story is don’t put fingers inside the railings of the pen or you could get a cheeky nibble! #oh Eck.”

“What’s the old adage? Never work with children or animals,” Graham Birggs shared.

He added: “Especially on the tv. Hope the fingers are better this morning. Loving the show as always.” (sic)

Winter on the Farm continues on Wednesday at 8pm on Channel 5.
