Helen was discussing her latest children’s book Wild Girl: How To Have Incredible Adventures on video call to the event.

Underneath, her fans heaped praised on the home expert for writing such a “positive” book for young girls.

Helen recently spoke on finding it hard to keep her family amused now the sun is no longer shining, after the UK experienced heavy downpours.

But she was also relieved by the rainy weather, which was preventing her children from diving in their paddling pool.

The star said that the children’s fearless diving had began “to scare” her.

Helen penned: “What a difference a day makes… hands up who finds it easier to keep the family amused when the sun is shining?

“Ideas for a rainy afternoons welcome! (Not complaining the ever-increasing dives my kids wanted to do into the paddling pool were starting to scare me).”(sic)

In the photo, Helen soaked up the last of the rays in an olive bikini top, paired with tortoiseshell sunglasses.

Her young son Louis could be seen in the background enjoying a dip in the pool.
