Strictly star Helen Skelton brought home a ‘new addition’ to the family yesterday, saying it sparked “great excitement”.

Fans were left devastated when Helen broke the heartbreaking news of her marriage breakdown last year, which occurred just weeks after she gave birth to her daughter Elsie.

Helen shares her three children with rugby player Richie Myler, but the pair unfortunately split last year shortly after the birth of their daughter.

Only a few weeks after the breakup, Richie then started dating Stephanie Thirkill and they are now expecting their first child together.

Great excitement at the new addition to the house today.

Taking to Instagram at the time, Helen revealed the heartbreaking news to her fans.

Helen shared: “Very sad to say Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children.”

But since the breakup, Helen has been on a journey of self discovery as she competed in the hit BBC One series Strictly and even reached the final.

During her appearance on the show, her partner Gorka Marquez also spoke highly of her.

He said: “I know you have been having a difficult time and I know you may not feel like you’re beautiful, good enough or anything. But if you don’t believe in yourself, I believe in you, everyone here believes in you.”
