The behind-the-scenes snap also showed Helen rocking a fabulous calf-length puffer coat which had a fabulously wintry black fur-lined hood.

Helen and Gemma appear to have built a sweet friendship after the wife of Gorka came out in support of the Countryfile star after a difficult week during the competition.

Earlier this month, Gemma took to her Instagram Stories with a clip of the kind words her husband Gorka had for Helen following their paso doble performance, encouraging her to believe in herself and praising her for being a lovely person and an "amazing" mum.

Alongside the sweet clip, Gemma added a gif of hands clapping and the words: "Absolutely!!!! What he said!!!"

The support came after it was revealed that Helen's husband, Richie Myler is expecting a baby with his new partner.

Helen and Richie split up in April four months after welcoming their youngest child baby Elsie. The pair also share sons Ernie, seven and Louis, five.

Announcing their split on Instagram the doting mother penned: "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."
