The star spoke to her fans and said: "Anybody else? You wait for them to have a nap and when they do have a nap you just do that [*looks at a picture*] so you can look at their face when you're working. Just me?"

Helen panned the camera to reveal a sweet picture of her youngest propped up against some ring binders in her temporary office room.

The star has been busy keeping her kids entertained and she recently took them to Stockeld Park for a fun day out together. She tagged the official Instagram account of the park when sharing her posts online to her 312,000 followers – and it looks like a lovely place to play.

The collection of snaps showed the trio's exciting day and one snap even saw the brother-duo tackling a climbing wall. Possibly a little more adventurous than the bespoke one they have in their own room.

The presenter confirmed their separation in a short statement on Instagram: "Very sad to say that 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."

Since the news, Helen has been sharing lots of her life with her kids on Instagram, and fans have also seen Richie with his youngest son Louis for some quality time.
