The presenter appeared on Monday’s episode of Lorraine where she revealed her mother Janet is currently helping her out with her and Richie’s three children Ernie, seven, and Louis, five and baby Elsie, six months.

Lorraine began the interview by saying: ‘Helen, it’s so good to see you. You’ve had a bit of a rough time, I know. But the best way to get over stuff is to just get out there again – out there working.’ 

Helen responded: ‘I think anybody in my position would say the same,’ as her dogs began to bark in the background. ‘I’ve got three small children and a very loud dog as you can hear.’

Helen is said to feel ‘bewildered’ by the breakdown of her marriage to Richie whose new partner is Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

A source close to the couple told MailOnline: ‘Helen is absolutely devastated. Now she is contemplating life without him while he has moved on with his new partner.’

‘Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married, and their baby is literally four months old.
