TV presenter Helen Skelton's husband Richie Myler, 31, is now dating the daughter of the multi-millionaire president of Leeds Rhinos rugby team, which he plays for.

Their marriage was over just four months after they welcomed their third child and first daughter, Elsie, into the world.

Helen and Richie also share sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four, together.

Richie has found romance with the daughter of the President of the rugby club he has been playing for since 2018, Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

Ms Thirkill is the daughter of Leeds Rhino president Andrew Thirkill, who is one of the richest businessmen in Leeds, and is said to be worth over £175m.

Daily Star has contacted a representative for Helen for comment.

Heartbroken Helen, confirmed that her marriage to Richie had broke down on social media just weeks ago as she shared a short statement on Instagram.

She told her fans that he had also moved out of the family home, as she penned on social media: "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."

Meanwhile, Richie hasn't publicly addressed the split from Helen.

Just days after the split, Countryfile viewers were said to see Helen was absent from the most recent episode as they shared their support for the presenter on social media.

The latest edition of the show was instead fronted by Adam Henson and Anita Rani.
