Helen Skelton’s estranged husband Richie Myler takes their children to Rugby League World Cup match as she leaves Yorkshire

Helen Skelton’s estranged husband Richie Myler took their three children to watch a Rugby League World Cup match as it was revealed she had moved back to live with her parents in Cumbria.

The couple have three children Ernie, (aged seven), Louis, (aged five), and nine-month-old Elsie. Richie took the children to watch Tonga beat Papua New Guinea at the Rugby League World Cup game in St Helens‘ Totally Wicked Stadium.

Helen, 39, and Richie, 32, announced their split in April this year, after eight years of marriage and just months after Helen had given birth to Elsie. She revealed to The Telegraph that she had moved back to her parents’ farm with the chchildren after Myler left the family home earlier this year and began a new relationship.
