Helen and Richie had been married for nine years and have three children together, with the youngest only being born in December.

It has since been reported that Richie is now dating the daughter of the multi-millionaire owner of his rugby club.

In a new interview, Helen has spoken about balancing work and her personal life.

Helen tellingly said to Go Outdoors: “Don’t compare yourself to anyone else, no one knows what happens behind closed doors.

“Lists and diaries are good too. If I write down things I need to do I feel like they are a weight off my brain.”
