Helen Skelton’s estranged husband first broke up with ‘new lover’ while out for a walk

Helen Skelton’s husband, Richie Myler, and new girlfriend, Stephanie Thirkill, were spotted taking a walk on Monday.

Richie was pictured for the first time with Stephanie, 32, with whom he is believed to have started a new relationship.

The two insisted they didn’t start a relationship until Richie split from Helen.

It was announced last month that the rugby player, 31, and Helen, 38, have separated, with Richie moving out of their family home.

A few weeks after their split, Richie and Stephanie were pictured together for the first time at a reservoir in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

In snaps shared by The Sun, Stephanie rocked a casual look in a red hoodie and a pair of patterned black and white leggings.

She had her hair tied in a messy bun and looked fresh without makeup.

Richie also kept it casual by wearing simple black shorts and a plain black hoodie over a white t-shirt.

A source claimed the duo “seemed really happy together.”

“They strolled down to the reservoir before a peaceful stroll down one of the tracks under the setting sun,” they told the publication.

“You can get away from it all there.”

It comes weeks after Countryfile presenter Helen announced the former couple’s split on social media.

Her moving Instagram post read: “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has moved out of the family home.

“We will do our best to co-parent our grandchildren.”

Helen and Richie married in 2013 and share three children together: Elsie Kate, four months, Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

Richie reportedly first met Stephanie – who is the daughter of the multi-millionaire chairman of his club Leeds Rhinos – at a rugby dinner last year.

Helen was in the third trimester of her pregnancy at the time.

Richie plays as a scrum half and fullback for the Leeds Rhinos.

In late April, TV presenter Helen was pictured engaged in a phone conversation while taking a walk.

She wasn’t wearing her wedding ring. Helen also wasn’t wearing her ring when she posted a few ads on her Instagram Stories.

Despite her heartbreak, Helen is set to make her small screen return and is “strengthening her strength” for her return to Countryfile after a short hiatus.

Last week it was revealed Helen had landed a brand new TV gig – hosting Channel 4’s Super League rugby show in June.
