The TV star posted this sweet snap with her baby daughter

Helen and Richie, who share three children, announced their split in April after eight years of marriage. In a short statement, the TV presenter confirmed: "Very sad to say 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."

News of the split came just four months after the former couple welcomed their third child, a daughter named Elsie Kate. They also share sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

Helen and Richie were married for eight years before separating

It has since been revealed that 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.
