Helen Skelton’s Estranged Husband Richie Myler DOES NOT FOLLOW His Wife on Instagram

Helen Skelton’s estranged husband, Richie Myler, apparently ditched his wife on Instagram after their split.

Countryfile presenter Helen, 38, announced last month that she had split from her rugby player partner, 31, after eight years of marriage.

The sports professional has since embarked on a new relationship with Stephanie Thirkill – the daughter of the multi-millionaire chairman of the Leeds Rhinos club he plays for.

And now Richie appears to have cut ties with Helen on Instagram as a ‘no users found’ message pops up when his name is searched on his ‘following’ list.

But Helen still follows her ex-husband on Instagram as his name currently appears on his list of 20,200 followers.

It’s unclear if the sports professional has ditched the former Blue Peter star or if Helen has dropped him from his followers.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Richie and Helen for comment.

Followers: And Richie appears to have severed ties with Helen on Instagram as a message saying ‘No users found’ pops up when his name is searched on his ‘followers’ list.

It comes after Helen attended the Sports Industry Awards on Thursday in her first public appearance since announcing her split from Richie.

She took to Instagram on Friday to share behind-the-scenes snaps of herself in an elegant cream dress with ruffle detailing down the front, the garment ending just above her ankles.

She wore a pair of black heels with transparent panels to add a few inches to her stature.

The screen star wore a black bag to match her shoes with her chunky gold chain matching her statement necklace.

In one shot, she posed with Ayo Akinwolere, and another saw her smiling with a group of glamorous women inside the event, as she seemed in high spirits.

Helen is said to have hired a private detective after becoming suspicious of her husband Richie’s behavior prior to their separation.

A source told Mail Online how heartbroken Helen felt ‘bewildered’ by the breakdown of her marriage to Richie, 31, who is now dating Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

They said: ‘Helen is absolutely devastated. Now she contemplates life without him as he has moved on with his new partner.

“Richie insists there was no crossover, that he started the romance with Stephanie after their marriage fell apart, but Helen feels disappointed. They are still married and their baby is literally four months old.

“She thought their marriage was safe and secure and is totally shocked by what happened. »

While Richie insisted there was no crossover and that he began his romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, The Sun reported that Helen suspected infidelity and contacted a private detective to help him uncover the truth.

The outlet also revealed how she reached out to Stephanie’s estranged husband, who lives in North Yorkshire, to address their relationship and the timeline surrounding it.

A close friend of Helen’s told the publication: “The devastated presenter felt something was wrong with her relationship with Richie.

“Hiring a private detective was the last thing she wanted to do, but she felt she had no choice and needed to know the truth for the sake of her sanity and her young family.

Split: Helen announced she and Richie were splitting via Instagram last month – admitting he had ‘left the family home’

“Emotions are running high and the most important thing for Helen is looking after her three children and making sure they are well during the difficult separation. »

Helen married Richie in December 2013 and the couple have three children together.

Until the breakup news broke, they seemed to the outside world to have the perfect marriage, with many expressions of their devotion on social media in recent weeks.

The couple bought a £550,000 cottage on the outskirts of Leeds during lockdown two years ago and spent hundreds of thousands of dollars refurbishing it with a beautifully fitted kitchen and huge patio doors to the idyllic garden.

Former Blue Peter star Helen confirmed her split from Richie on Instagram last month, writing, “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple.”
