Helen Skeltons ex Richie Myler is dating rugby club boss daughter

Helen Skelton's ex husband Richie Myler is reportedly dating his "rugby club boss's daughter" following his split from the presenter.

The 38 year old Countryfile presenter sadly announced the news she and Richie, who had been married for eight years, had decided to part ways and he moved out of the family home.

Now 31 year old Leeds Rhinos rugby player Richie has reportedly embarked on a new relationship with the Leeds Rhinos club President's daughter Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

Mum-of-three Helen revealed she and Richie are "no longer a couple" only a week ago, but the pair had reportedly called it quits some time before that.

The news also came only four months after the former couple welcomed their first daughter, a baby girl named Elsie Kate, who is the youngest sibling to their sons Ernie, six, and Louis, four.


Stephanie is the daughter of club owner Andrew Thirkill, who is one of the richest men in Leeds and estimated to be worth £175million.

According to the MailOnline, the rugby player started dating the millionaire's daughter in the wake of the breakdown of his marriage.

OK! has contacted representatives for Richie and Helen for further comment.

It comes as a source told The Sun sportsman Richie had reportedly been "spending a lot of his free time with this younger, successful businesswoman" since the split, but the mystery woman wasn't named.

Sources also claimed that in the wake of the rugby player's split from Helen, Richie decided to jet off on a holiday abroad, and went with his alleged "new missus" so they could "be out of the public eye".

"Helen’s holding it together well, which is admirable given she was blindsided by his new relationship," one source told the publication, going on to claim that mutual friends of the pair believe Richie has treated his wife "appallingly".

"It’s a shock to them that he’s moved on so soon after she announced the marriage was over," the insider added.

During this difficult time, Helen has also taken some time away with her children with a sun-soaked getaway over the Easter holidays.

Breaking the news of her and Richie's break-up on her own Instagram stories, the Inside the Superbrands presenter is then thought to have escaped on yet another break.

"Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple," she told her fans at the time. "He has left the family home."
