The pair share two children

The former couple met whilst filming BBC drama Hotel Babylon, and married in December 2012.

Opening up about her divorce and going on the show, she said: "Going through a divorce is awful. I'd been asked to do Strictly and, strange as it sounds, I thought it would be like a sort of therapy after my divorce. I'd spoken to quite a few people who said how it really helped them through difficult times.

Helen and Oliver were married for three years

"You are focused on this one thing, it's an emotional journey. I was so naïve that I thought no one would be interested in me, so that was a shock. I soon realised I didn’t want all that celebrity stuff."

Helen, who is currently on tour with the UK production of the King and I used to be a backing singer for Elton John.
