Helen Skelton has enjoyed her first public outing since her split from husband Richie Myler.

The Countryfile star shared the sad news that she had split from Richie, who she shares three kids with, last month.

Since then, he has moved on with new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.

They went public with their relationship on a romantic dog walk earlier this week.

And now Helen has broken cover.

Helen’s long dark grey locks – changed up recently from her usual blonde – were worn down and in loose waves.

Very sad to say Richie and I are no longer a couple.

She wore a cream midi dress which showed off her slim figure, teaming the dress with a chunky gold necklace, black stilettos and a matching black handbag.

She smiled as she posed solo on the red carpet.

When did Helen Skelton split from her husband?

It’s doubtless been a tough few weeks for Helen, but you wouldn’t know it looking at her smile.

She was married to Richie for eight years and, just four months before their split, had given birth to their youngest child.

They couple are parents to Ernie, six, Louis, five, and baby Elsie Kate, who is just four months old.

Announcing the split, Helen gave no reason for the end of their romance.

She did, however, admit that the news was “very sad” and Richie was no longer living in the family home.

“Very sad to say Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home,” she said.
