Helen Skelton looked gorgeous as she made her first public appearance since announcing that her husband Richie Myler left the family home.


The Countryfile presenter, 38, arrived on the red carpet for the Sports Industry Awards at Evolution London this week and looked ethereal in her ensemble.

She rocked a flowing cream-coloured dress with loose sleeves. It ended just above her ankles and gave the spotlight to her black mesh high heels.

Helen also accessorised with a chunky chain bracelet which matched her gold necklace. The star was without her wedding ring.

The star kept her tresses in loose waves that flowed over her shoulder while she smiled for the cameras.

She also carried a small black bag to complete the entire look.

It's her first public appearance since announcing her split


Her appearance comes a few weeks after she revealed that she and her husband had split after eight years of marriage.

Helen and the Rugby player's split comes just four months after the pair welcomed their third child, Elsie Kate.

The pair are also proud parents to sons, Ernie, six, and Louis, four.

In her short statement, Helen penned: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home.
