Fresh heartbreak for Helen Skelton as ex Richie Myler ‘gets engaged’ to new girlfriend

December 10, 2023

Helen Skelton is reportedly dealing with a fresh wave of heartbreak as her ex-husband Richie Myler has allegedly proposed to his new girlfriend, with their divorce not yet finalised.

Richie and his new partner Stephanie Thirkill started dating last May and welcomed their first child together the following year. While they haven't confirmed their engagement, it's reported that they've shared the news with close family and friends.

A source told The Mirror: "Richie and Stephanie are engaged. They're keeping it very quiet because Richie's divorce from Helen hasn't yet been finalised." They added that loved ones know about the upcoming wedding and the couple are excited to start planning.

Richie recently posted a heartfelt birthday message for Stephanie, writing: "Happy birthday to the most wonderful person I know. Me and Olivia are so grateful for everything you for us and the person that you are."

"You are such an amazing mummy to Olivia, we are very lucky. We love doing life with you and can't wait for what the future holds together. Here's to another exciting year, love you lots."

Helen shared about her break up with Richie in her book My Stride, confessing she was "in shock". 

 "I know that following break-ups, people often say they didn't see it coming and it sounds like a cliche, but that was me."

In her book, she revealed the split shattered her confidence, but being on Strictly last year helped her regain it. She shared: "In week two, Gorka asked me why I didn't feel sexy. It was an awkward question that immediately made me cringe."

She continued: "He was asking a woman with three children under six, whose husband had just left her and was with another woman, TO BE SEXY."

"I thought, 'Who would feel good about themselves in that scenario?'" But, she had a turning point after dancing to Cabaret's Mein Herr where she performed in suspenders, which she said let her "be the boss".

Helen ended up bagging second place on her season of Strictly.
