In April, Helen, then 39, declared the dissolution of her eight-year marriage to Richie. The announcement was made four months after she gave birth to their third child.

According to her, it enables her to focus on her job obligations on Strictly and ITV’s Lorraine, where she has joined a brand-new “Me Time” campaign, while her parents help care for her three young children.
