Helen Skelton cuts ties with estranged husband Richie Myler on Instagram

By Zoe Delaney

Helen Skelton 's estranged husband Richie Myler is no longer following the talented TV presenter on Instagram.

The rugby player "left the family home" in April this year, just four-months on from former Blue Peter presenter Helen giving birth to their third child together on 28th December 2021.

It now appears that the dad-of-three, 31, has also cut ties with the mother of his children on social media - with the Richie nowhere to be seen amongst Helen's 295,000 followers on Instagram.

It is not known whether the sports star - who was pictured enjoying romantic stroll with his new girlfriend earlier this week - was the one to unfollow Helen, or whether the Countryfile presenter removed her ex as a follower and/or blocked him.

The social media split comes after the mum-of-three was pictured looking super chic and glamourous earlier this week, as she made her first public appearance since announcing that Richie Myler had left the family home.

Helen showed no signs of any heartbreak on Thursday night, as she beamed in a cream dress and smiled next to TV presenter Ayo Akinwolere.

The presenter's night on the town came after reports soon-to-be ex-husband Richie met new beau Stephanie Thirkill, 32, for the first time when his wife was six months pregnant.

According to The Sun, Richie and Stephanie - who is the daughter of the multi-millionaire president of his club Leeds Rhinos - reportedly met each other during a rugby dinner in Autumn last year. Helen was in the third trimester of her pregnancy.

Mirror have previously contacted representatives for comment.

Helen first announced her split from Richie via a short social media post in April.

Her emotional Instagram post read: "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."

Alongside their newborn daughter Elsie Kate, the former couple also share sons, Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

Earlier this week, it was reported that Helen fears some of her close friends may have known about Richie and Stephanie's relationship before she found out.

According to new! magazine, has reportedly been "feeling low" and worried their mutual pals failed to warn her about the sports stars new partner.

"Helen feels betrayed that some of their friends possibly already knew [Richie and his girlfriend] were together before she did, and they didn't let her know," a source claiming to be close to the star alleged to the publication.

"It could have been that her pals felt they were in a difficult position, as Helen has just had her new baby and it was a hard time, but it has made her feel low."

Richie is yet to publicly comment on the split or his current relationship status.
