After announcing their split 16 months ago, Helen Skelton said she has formally divorced her rugby player ex-husband Richie Myler.
The TV presenter, 40, announced her divorce from the England and Leeds Rhinos rugby player, 33, in April.
Last Monday, the former Strictly Come Dancing participant received a decree nisi, thus ending their 10-year marriage.
According to MailOnline, the former couple and their three children – Ernie, eight, Louis, five, and Elsie, 16 months – got confirmation of the legal paperwork in the mail.
Following their divorce, the star’s ex had a child with his current partner Stephanie Thirkill, 32, who is also the daughter of Leeds Rhinos president Andrew.
The magazine reported that they were awaiting an absolute declaration before their decade-long relationship was officially ended.
‘Things are moving extremely fast for Helen and her life is going through a lot of changes,’ a friend of the celebrity told the news source in the aftermath of the split news.
‘She’s quit a high profile job, has left the home she shared with Richie and now their divorce is finalised.
‘These are exciting times for her and she’s looking forward to a new life.’
Another source revealed that the Countryfile host was hoping to re-enter the dating scene now that her marriage had ended.
They revealed: ‘Helen’s family and friends encouraged her to get back out there and she was happy to dip her toe back into the dating scene, but she has had some wobbles and found herself feeling guilty.
‘She’s concerned about who to let into her life and worried about being judged for any decisions she makes.
‘There have also been some people who have made comments about her not trying hard enough to make it work with Richie, and it’s made her think about her marriage and what went wrong.
‘Ultimately, she knows she tried everything she could, and once the trust was broken there was just no going back. But dating again has brought up some unexpected feelings that she’s been struggling with.’
