Helen has been a radio presenter for many years, and this year has enjoyed finally being on screen rather than hidden behind the mic as she has hosted online events for National Fostering Group.

She lives with her husband and 2 cats, enjoys yoga and meditation and is currently studying to become a counsellor. 

Tim is a radio presenter and currently hosts the breakfast show on Smooth Radio Lake District.

Tim has worked across the world but now enjoys a quieter life.
