Winter On The Farm’s Helen Skelton comforts co-star Jules Hudson after ‘loss’

Jules Hudson discusses how he deals with loss

Winter On The Farm presenter Helen Skelton comforted her co-host Jules Hudson when he became emotional during tonight’s episode of the Channel 5 rural documentary series which is shot in Cannon Hall Farm in South Yorkshire.

The A Place In The Country presenter’s father Clifford died a year ago, and a short while later his two black Labradors succumbed to cancer.

Before introducing a pre-recorded segment where he went for a walk in a forest, Jules referenced his difficult year and a concerned looking Helen laid a comforting hand on his back as it cut to the clip.

When the short film ended, an emotional Helen told him: “I‘m so sorry for your loss and I’m so sorry that as your friend…you don’t as adults do you sit down and talk about this kind of stuff…because you’re a stiff upper lip kind of guy.”

A clearly emotional Jules recalled the day he had filmed the clip and admitted that he found it quite poignant.

“It’s funny watching it back, I realise how emotional I was actually and I think distraction is what we do really,” he reflected.

“We just put everything off and put it to the back of our minds but getting out into nature wherever you can get to and allowing it to surface and to confront it and to acknowledge what you’ve lost and give them the time they deserve.

“It was a really important day,” he explained with his voice shaking with emotion.

During the clip he had addressed the losses he had suffered, as he explained the different trees to the viewers.

“This has been quite a year for me in one way or another,” he reflected.

“My father died almost a year to the day today. I don’t think I’ve ever really quite come to terms with that or really grieved for him,” he admitted.

“One of the last times I came here I had my youngest labrador Teddy with me.

“Teddy is no longer with us either. We’ve lost both of them, and yeah I found myself today almost looking around for him,” he admitted.

“We just keep going and we look to the sun and we look to the next sunrise,” he poignantly opined.

Winter On the Farm is on Channel 5 every night this week at 9pm.
