Strictly's Helen Skelton shares adorable snap of her kids after ex makes dig about 'new family' | The Sun
STRICTLY'S Helen Skelton today shared an adorable snap of her kids after her ex made a dig about his "new family".
The Countryfile presenter, 39, was left shattered when her rugby husband Richie Myler ended their eight-year marriage in April, four months after their third child was born.
The 32-year-old moved on very quickly from his failed marriage with new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill, 32, the daughter of multi-millionaire Andrew Thirkill.
And on Saturday night, as Helen put on a spectacular performance on the dance floor, Richie made a dig at his ex on Instagram.
Sharing a picture of him and Stephanie with her family, he said: "Finished this season as a family."
But in a bid to rise above her ex's sly dig, Helen posted a sweet snap of her family – two of the children she shares with him.

“Anybody who's had anything to do with Strictly will say, the make-up people are the best, the costume people are the best, the set designers are the best, the dancers are the best.
“So why wouldn't you want to do something where everyone is literally at the top of their game and loving what they do?”
Helen is now juggling training with caring for her three children Ernie, seven, Louis, five and baby Elsie.
Last night the talented mum and her dance partner Gorka Marquez finished 6th on the leaderboard after getting 26 points.
