Countryfile's Helen Skelton, 38, was seen out over the bank holiday weekend before the latest revelations about her ex, Richie Myler.
Helen's former partner Richie, 31, is said to be in a relationship with the daughter of the multi-millionaire President of the Leeds Rhinos club, which he himself plays for.
According to Mail Online, Richie is dating 32 year old Stephanie Thirkill, who he’s reportedly already living with, just weeks after moving out of his family home with Helen.
Helen and her rugby player ex-husband Richie split around April, just four months after Helen gave birth to their fourth child, a baby daughter, although no reason was given for the breakdown of their marriage.
Helen announced the sad news in an Instagram story post, writing: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co parent our small children." She ended the message with two broken heart emojis.”
Whilst Richie has yet to comment on the news, he returned to Instagram four days ago, posting a boomerang of his kids’ sports lesson.
Last week, it was reported that Richie had started dating a mystery woman just weeks after his split from Helen, which reportedly left her “dumbstruck”.
After it’s emerged that the woman is Stephanie, a source told Mail Online: “Helen is absolutely devastated. Now she is contemplating life without him while he has moved on with his new partner.”
“Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married, and their baby is literally four months old.
“She thought their marriage was safe and secure and is totally shocked by what's happened.”
Richie’s new partner Stephanie’s father, Andrew Thirkill is assumed to be one of the richest businessmen in Leeds, and he’s reported to be worth £175million.
Ms Thirkill is said to be a huge rugby fan, and often attends Leeds Rhinos matches, where it is believed she met Richie.
Helen, who has yet to comment on her ex-husband’s new relationship, was seen popping to her local shops in Leeds, where she lives in her marital home with the ex-couple’s three children.
Richie was also seen since the news of his relationship broke, as he headed to the barbers to get a new haircut.
