Helen Skelton dumbstruck after husband Richie Myler starts relationship weeks after split

Helen Skelton is said to have been left "dumbstruck" after her husband Richie Myler reportedly embarked on a new relationship just weeks after they split up.

The former Countryfile presenter, 38, who was seen to be focusing on her work as she promoted her new documentary earlier on Friday (April 29), is reportedly devastated her husband of nearly nine years has already "started a romance" with a new woman.

Friends of the 31 year old Leeds rugby player have reportedly claimed that the sports star has already "seen the young businesswoman several times recently".

The sources also claimed that Richie is in the "very early stages of a relationship" with the mystery woman, which came following his split from the mother of his three children.

A source told The Sun: “Richie appears to have been spending a lot of his free time with this younger, successful businesswoman.

"They are now in the early stages of a relationship."

While the publication has declined to name the mystery woman, sources claimed the relationship began "several weeks ago".

OK! has contacted a representative for the former married couple.

It comes as Helen announced she and Richie would be doing their best for their children Ernie, six, Louis, five, and newborn daughter Elsie, despite the shocking change in family circumstances.

The former Blue Peter Host explained to her followers that her estranged husband had moved out of the family home and she was "very sad" about the break-up.

"Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple.

"He has left the family home," the star wrote on a sombre black screen on her Instagram story.
