Helen and Richie were married for eight years before separating

Helen continues to follow her husband on the social media site.

Stephanie is the daughter of Andrew Thirkill, the multi-millionaire President of the Leeds Rhinos rugby club, for which Richie plays. Mr Thirkill is one of the richest businessmen in Leeds, with his worth estimated at £175 million.

Stephanie and Richie reportedly met at a rugby dinner last autumn — when Countryfile presenter Helen was pregnant with their now four-month-old daughter Elsie.

Despite meeting whilst still married, Richie has insisted there was no crossover and that he began the romance with Stephanie after his marriage collapsed.
