In an emotional VT, the presenter, 39, breaks down in tears as she praises the professional dancer, 32, for boosting her confidence, telling him: “You put faith in me that I didn’t have. “
Helen’s words come amid her split from husband Richie Myler, 32, in April after eight years of marriage, just four months after she gave birth to their third child – and Richie quickly moved on with new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill, 33.
The mother-of-three has previously opened up about her struggles with her confidence during their split and credited the BBC show for helping her “be happy in my own skin”.
