Strictly star Helen Skelton takes swipe at ex Richie with cryptic post | The Sun

Jan 2, 2023

STRICTLY Come Dancing star Helen Skelton has taken a brutal swipe at her ex Richie Myler in a cryptic post.

The Countryfile presenter – who competed in the BBC One dance show with Gorka Marquez last year – took to her social media with a sweet snap on herself in training.

Mother-of-three Helen, 39, could be seen smiling in the black and white snap, posted to Instagram on Monday.

The TV favourite could be seen posing on one leg as she kept it casual in black leggings and a cropped hoodie.

She looked radiant with minimal make-up, letting her brunette hair flow as she danced around the room.

"Hey, 2023, this is me," Helen captioned the post. "Never complain, never explain, just crack on."

Fans flooded the comments section to compliment her post, saying they had utmost "respect" for the star.

"There can only be respect for that," one said, as another chimed in: "On you go, you amazing woman."

The post could come as a brutal hit back to Helen's ex Richie, 32, who recently announced he was expecting a baby with another woman after splitting from Helen.

Helen, who has three children with her ex-husband, was left heartbroken when the couple split last year.

The pair went their separate ways in April just months after baby daughter Elsie's birth.

She wrote in April: “Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children.”

The Sun reported that Richie had quickly embarked on a romance with a mystery new woman who we later revealed to be successful marketing executive Stephanie Thirkill.

The new couple announced they were expecting with a post to social media, with Richie thought to have told Helen just days before.

A friend of his said last night: “Stephanie and Richie are obviously thrilled. They have moved very quickly but are extremely happy together.

“The timing of the pregnancy may raise a few eyebrows though.

“It is obviously such a huge step, and one made remarkably quickly off the back of Helen and Richie’s eight-year marriage ending.

"But Richie and Helen maintain cordial relations, and in a way the timing is actually perfect as Helen is so happy at the moment.”
