Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton flies with Red Arrows in Lincolnshire
BLUE Peter presenter Helen Skelton took to the skies of Lincolnshire with the Red Arrows for her latest Red Nose Day Challenge.
The daredevil presenter prepared for the most terrifying ride of her life yesterday which saw her fly with the RAF’s aerobatic display team.
As well as preparing her body and mind for the flight with the Arrows, Helen has been working with the Sleaford Air Cadets to raise money in the region.
The RAF Cranwell-based cadets have been planning a series of air-themed fundraisers and Helen was to reward them with an extra special fly past.

Before taking on the challenge Helen said: “I’ve walked a high wire to raise money but I’ve never done a challenge at this height or this speed before. I’m nervous and excited and I just hope it inspires people in Lincolnshire to get sponsored to do something challenging this Red Nose Day.
"It’s really important that we all rally together. I've seen first-hand how Comic Relief makes a big difference and changes people’s lives for the better, both here in the UK and in Africa.”
Helen has kayaked down the Amazon, walked a high wire above Battersea Power Station and trekked the South Pole.
This was the third of Helen’s Magnificent 7 challenges for Red Nose Day 2013. She’s already tried to kick a conversion in front of 82,000 rugby fans at Twickenham and performed in two musicals in London’s West End in an evening.
You can watch Helen’s Magnificent 7 every Thursday for the next five weeks on Blue Peter, Thursdays at 5.45pm on CBBC. For more information and ideas about your own challenges, visit www.rednoseday.com/challenge
The money raised for Red Nose Day is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives across Africa and here in the UK.
