Helen Skelton breaks silence as ex Richie shares picture of heavily pregnant girlfriend

Helen Skelton enjoyed a countryside stroll just one day after her ex-husband Richie Myler shared a photo of his heavily pregnant girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill on his newly-reinstated Instagram.

The Strictly Come Dancing finalist, 39, shared some video footage of the countryside's scenic landscape as she pushed her youngest daughter Elsie in a pram.

Helen shrugged off her ex's baby news, as she paired the footage of her stroll with the song Lovely Day, sung by the late Bill Withers.

She then shared a snap of a field of sheep as she continued to enjoy the country air with her youngest child.

Yesterday, rugby player Richie share a loved-up snap with his new partner Stephanie as she showcased her blossoming bump.

Richie and Stephanie, both 32, rested their heads on one another's as the mum-to-be put her hands on Richie's face.

Both wearing white shirts, Stephanie's was buttoned down at the front to show a side profile of her growing bump. Richie simply captioned the snap with a heart emoji.

Last year Richie deleted his Instagram account due to receiving abuse in the wake of the breakdown of his marriage, however he has now re-joined the photo sharing app but has kept comments limited on his post.

It comes after Helen is said to have grown close Strictly Come Dancing pro Vito Coppola during their time on Strictly Come Dancing Live.

Speaking to The Mirror, a source said: "Helen and Vito were good friends during Strictly, but really bonded on tour. There were two buses for the cast – the party bus and the quiet bus.

"They spent a lot of time chatting on the quiet bus and getting to know each other. They have a lot in common – a love of the outdoors, for example.

"Between shows they also spent time together one-on-one, like going for coffee, just the two of them. Then, if the whole group went for dinner, they would sit together, deep in conversation."

The source added: “If anyone pulled out a phone and started filming, Helen would move away from Vito. She didn’t want to be captured in the background.”

Helen has been single since splitting from Richie just months before the 2022 Strictly season kicked off. The couple's eight year marriage ended last year, soon after she gave birth to their third child, Elsie.

Richie then began a relationship with Stephanie Thirkhill, with whom he is now expecting a baby.
