Skelton said that, coming from a "sports mad" family, the opportunity to join BT Sport was one she could not turn down.

"I love the passion and loyalty you see from football supporters and I can’t wait to tell the stories behind the teams," she added.

Simon Green, Director of BT Sport, said he was "delighted" to welcome BT Sport's latest addition to the presenting team.

"Helen is a fantastic presenter and is well-regarded and respected for her sporting prowess. We are excited to have her on board," he stated.

BT Sport recently agreed a two-year deal with the Football Conference to show 30 live matches a season, including 25 league games and the play-offs.

The broadcaster says the deal will bring live non-league football to "a much wider audience than before".
