Helen Skelton put down her headphones in the BBC Radio 5 Live studios for one last timetoday as she announced she was leaving.
The 40-year-old told listeners she had decided to leave the show “for now” due to wanting to spend more time with her family.
Fans of Helen won’t be missing her for too long, however, as her This Week On The Farm co-star Jules Hudson spilled details about their future on the show this week.
Jules, in collaboration with Chef & Brewer, told Express.co.uk that they will be back on screen for Harvest On The Farm next month.
The presenters will reunite for the live event at the end of September alongside farmers Rob and Dave Nicholson.

On working with Helen, the 53-year-old spilled: “With Helen, what you see is what you get.
“She’s an absolute trooper and a professional, she has an absolutely wicked sense of humour.
“She really is good fun and she really is a pleasure too, she is also a master, of course, of live TV.”
Working with animals, the pair have had their fair share of mishaps along the way including when Helen got her finger bitten by a donkey live on air.
Such events, Jules said, are handled brilliantly by the team he calls “great friends”, adding: “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

On her final show today, Helen admitted she had found it tough juggling her job with being a mum to three children.
Speaking to her co-host Lloyd Griffith, she said: “I am not alright about it but, you know, needs must. The juggle is real.”
At the end of her programme, she signed off telling listeners: “I’ve loved every minute of the past year… thank you to all the team and thank you to all of you. Its hard to know what to say without getting emotional!”
Chef & Brewer Collection, a collection of unique pubs in idyllic countryside locations, has partnered with Warner’s Distillery and Jules Hudson, this summer to celebrate the nation’s love of pub gardens and the Great British countryside.
As part of the partnership, the pub brand is serving up two limited edition summer drinks from Warner’s Distillery, the Rhubarb Crumble and Raspberry Collins – with 50p from every sale going to The Wildlife Trust BCN.
The presenter said of his involvement: “The atmosphere that you find in a country pub is like nothing else, with them often acting as a hub for generations of rural communities.
“So often located in quaint villages or idyllic countryside surroundings, country pubs are made extra special by their connection to the great outdoors.”
