Helen Skelton under fire from BBC bosses for breaking rules of her Morning Live contract | The Sun

HELEN Skelton is said to have come under fire from BBC bosses after tagging her Morning Live Instagram posts with brand mentions.

The Countryfile presenter, 40, has now removed the shout-outs for clothing brands including Boden and Cos as well as for foodie items.

This week, Helen tagged a stunning selection of garments from her time on the BBC daytime series.

These included a striped shirt and trousers from UK-based retailer Boden as well as a blue jumpsuit – all of which sent Morning Live fans crazy.

Helen's plugs – which have now been removed – have been seen as contravening the BBC's strict rules on promotions, which read: "No on-air talent should promote products, goods, services or clothing they use."

A BBC spokesperson told MailOnline: "Helen pays for the clothes she wears on the show and does not have relationships with the brands tagged.

The Sun has gone to Helen's rep for comment.

It comes in contrast to ITV host Holly Willoughby, who fronts rival daytime series This Morning on the broadcaster.
