Helen Skelton ‘s estranged rugby player husband Richie Myler has reportedly gone on holiday with a new woman just weeks after the couple’s split.
The Countryfile presenter, who gave birth to the couple’s third child in December announced her 31-year-old husband had left the family home in April, writes the Mirror.
It has been reported that Richie has “started a romance” with a woman just weeks after their split and The Sun claims that he is “riding out the storm” with his new lover.
Ex Blue Peter presenter Helen has plans to co-parent her two sons Ernie, who turns seven next month, Louis who just turned five, and newborn baby daughter.
Helen wrote of their split: “Very sad to say 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.”
Richie who plays for Super League Leeds Rhinos was also seen going for a haircut in a blue tracksuit and baseball cap.
Although the former couple haven’t officially talked about the reason behind their split, The Sun has claimed that Richie has been spending some time with a young business woman.
An insider claimed: ”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. Helen has known something hasn’t been right in the marriage for a while now.”
”She was absolutely dumbstruck when it finally ended. The split has been incredibly tough on Helen.”
Helen had gone on holiday with their three children to Lanzarote’s Dorada Beach for the Easter break.
