TV presenter Helen Skelton looked happy and relaxed in behind-the-scenes snaps from her first public outing since announcing she has split with her husband Richie Myler.

The Countryfile presenter, 38, looked stunning on the red carpet for the Sports Industry Awards this week, in a chic cream gown – just days after her estranged husband was snapped with his new girlfriend.

Earlier this evening the ex-Blue Peter host shared three snaps of the bash, including one of her with four women, all dressed in to the nines in gowns.

Helen had her arms around the glamorous group as they beamed for the camera, with other attendees in the background.

In another picture, the TV star smiled next to TV presenter Ayo Akinwolere, who looked dapper in a tuxedo.

A third photo showed the mum-of-three ahead of the event, wearing her dress as well as black mesh high heels, a black bag and a gold necklace.

She captioned the post: “We didn’t win but we played some good golf along the way!”

Her appearance at the bash came a few weeks after she revealed that she and her husband had split up after eight years of marriage.

The break-up came just four months after the pair welcomed their third child, Elsie Kate.

The pair are also proud parents to sons, Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

In her short statement, Helen penned: “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 young children.”

Meanwhile, her estranged husband, 31, was recently pictured for the first time with his reported new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill32, on a walk.

Richie and Stephanie, who is the daughter of the multi-millionaire president of his club Leeds Rhinos, who has reportedly embarked on a new relationship with.

Stephanie’s dad Andrew is estimated to be worth a staggering £ 175million and is one of the wealthiest businessmen in Leeds.

Both have insisted they did not start a relationship until Richie had split from Helen.

A few weeks after the split, Richie and Stephanie were pictured together for the first time at a reservoir in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Richie reportedly first met Stephanie during a rugby dinner last year. Helen was in the third trimester of her pregnancy at the time.

He plays as a scrum-half and fullback for the Leeds Rhinos.

At the end of April, TV presenter Helen was pictured engaged in a phone conversation while taking a walk.

She wasn’t wearing her wedding ring in the snaps. Helen also wasn’t wearing her ring when she posted a couple of advertisements on her Instagram Stories in recent weeks.

Just days after the split was announced, Helen was absent from Countryfile, which prompted fans to show their support.

In some happy news, it has recently been confirmed that Helen has landed the job of presenting Channel 4’s Super League coverage.
