Countryfile host Helen Skelton, 37, struggled to contain her dislike of her co-star’s latest project during tonight’s episode of This Week On The Farm. The star was less than impressed over the results of farmers Rob and Dave’s flavoured gin creations and couldn’t hide her disgust when she tasted the latter’s homemade beverage after apologising for her reaction.


The drinking session started off well to begin with when Helen sampled Rob’s gin, which she seemed to enjoy.

Explaining the ingredients in his drink, Rob said: “There’s 28 separate botanicals in there but the dominant flavour is wild raspberries.”

Complimenting Rob on his hard work, Helen said: “I actually really like that, it’s fruity but it’s not too much!”

“Well I would recommend a rosewater lemonade tonic to go with it,” Rob chimed.

Helen then moved on to critique the next drink, which was garnished with a Jaffa cake, and said: “I like the effort with the garnish.

“But if I’m going to be harsh, it’s a little bit more vintage than I would have gone for.”

The star’s co-host Jules Hudson agreed and wondered if the biscuit decoration was “entirely practical”, while struggling to figure out how to drink from the glass, as the snack was attached to it.

Unfortunately, things got progressively worse for Dave when Helen complained about his gin being “much stronger smelling”.
