Helen Skelton's sad final Valentine's post to estranged husband Richie revealed after she announces shock split

HELEN Skelton's sad final Valentine's Day post to her estranged husband has been revealed months before their shock split.

The Countryfile presenter announced her marriage with rugby player Richie Myler had come to an end after he "left the family home".

TV star Helen, 38, took to Instagram to reveal the shock news that she and Richie, 31, had gone their separate ways.

The presenter shares three young children, Ernie, six, Louis, five, and baby Elsie, with the rugby player, who she married in 2013.

The couple welcomed their youngest – now four months old – just last year ahead of their unexpected split on Monday.

"Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple," she wrote on Instagram. "He has left the family home."

Helen last posed with her other half Richie on Instagram back in February, as they celebrated Valentine's Day at home.

Hugging him tight as they posed for a selfie in the kitchen, looking loved up, the former couple smiled wide for the camera.

"That time I bumped into you in the kitchen for ten minutes," she jokingly captioned the post, hinting to their busy parenting schedule.

Earlier today, Helen shared another post about the stresses of motherhood that showed she was feeling emotional.

The post read: "A mama is always full of emotions. Full of love, full of anxiety and worries, full of exhaustion and lack of energy.

"Full of mum guilt and doubt, full of pride in her kids, full of pure joy. She feels it all, that's the beauty of her, she carries it all, too.

"And yet she gets up every day and does it all over again."

Just last week, Helen shared pictures of herself looking happy and healthy as she posed by a swimming pool on holiday.

The Springtime on the Farm presenter looked incredible, just weeks after giving birth, as she played with her sons in the water.

There was no sign from the fun-loving pictures that there was any turmoil in her marriage, although Richie did not appear in the snaps.

Helen and Richie welcomed their youngest Elsie into the world on December 28th last year.

She later shared a picture of Richie carrying the bundle of joy as they left the hospital hand in hand.

Helen captioned the post: "Can always count on Dickie."

"Of all the things he’s said (there’s been a lot) 'don’t worry I will be your lido…' while on route to hospital might be my fave," she added.

"The man meant Doula. From the mouths of men."
