Helen and Richie were married for eight years before separating

It has since been revealed that 31-year-old Richie is in a new relationship with Stephanie Thirkill, the daughter of the multi-millionaire President of the Leeds Rhinos club he plays for.

Stephanie and Richie reportedly met at a rugby dinner last autumn. Despite meeting whilst still married, Richie has insisted there was no crossover and that he began the romance with Stephanie after his marriage collapsed.
