Richie Myler, 32, the husband of BBC presenter Helen Skelton, moved on to a new romance with businesswoman Stephanie Thrikill before the wounds could mend. Find out more about them in this post.
Richie Myler, a fullback for Leeds Rhino, just divorced his wife of eight years, Helen Skelton, age 39, in April.
It was shocking for the two to end their relationship this way, given that they had just had their third child four months earlier.
Richie has maintained a low profile since their divorce, but he recently started professing his love for Stephanie on all his social media accounts.
On July 10, while attending Wimbledon with Stephanie, the Leeds Rhinos player presented her to his Instagram fans.
But his wife Helen is baffled by how their marriage ended and is now preoccupied with the kids and going on with her life.

The ex-couples are making disparaging statements about one another, so they don’t seem to be one of those amicable ex-couples we read about.
Richie Myler quickly moved on with Stephanie Thirkill after their breakup in early April 2022.
The Leeds Rhino Star and his love interest Stephanie spent time in Cornwall on July 25, and the two shared pictures of their trip on their Instagram accounts.
The athlete said, “Cornwall was worth a 32-year wait,” as the photo’s caption. It was a sly jab at his ex-colleague.
Myler’s boyfriend soon said, “I appreciate a wonderful weekend. adore you”
Stephanie, according to MailOnline, interprets this as a face-rub and is perplexed by how swiftly the sportsman was able to move on with his life.
Although her friends are pressuring her to get back into the dating scene, Stephanie has stated that she wants to concentrate on her children, whom she shares with Richie, and is content being single for the time being.
