A TV programme starring Cumbria's Helen Skelton has won a gong at the TV choice awards. 

Channel 5's 'On The Farm' tells the story of Cannon Hall Farm near Barnsley and is presented by Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson. 

Farming is particularly close to Helen as she grew up on her parent's dairy farm near Kirkby Thore. 

The show won the Best Factual Show award at the awards ceremony in London which was hosted by Tom Allen.
