Helen Skelton’s ex husband Richie Myler deletes his Instagram after ‘abusive messages’

Helen Skelton’s ex husband Richie Myler has deleted his Instagram account after he previously posted about being trolled with "abusive messages" on his social media posts.

Richie – who shares sons Ernie, seven, Louis, five, and one year old daughter Elsie – with presenter Helen, 39, previously used his social media to share his achievements as a Leeds Rhinos rugby player, as well as life updates with his new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill.

But after receiving negative comments and messages since moving on from Helen, the 32 year old decided to make his account private.

"I’ve decided to put my profile private from now on. If you are on here to share my photos or stories of me and my life maliciously to other people or waste your time sending me abusive messages please just unfollow me," he shared.

"I'm going to start removing people from my account one by one, so if you are a genuine rugby fan and I accidentally remove you I apologise in advance and will accept you back! Thank you Richie."

And now, he has deleted his social media profile completely.

Last April, Helen broke the news that she and her husband of eight years Richie had gone their separate ways.

Richie's decision to leave the family home came just four months after he and Helen welcomed their third child together.

Richie has since moved on with Stephanie Thirkill – the daughter of his rugby club president Andrew Thirkill – and are now expecting their first child together as a new couple.

Helen has not addressed her ex's new romance but she was open and honest about losing her confidence and finding herself again during her time on Strictly Come Dancing.

As Helen celebrated the New Year, she shared a snap of herself on Instagram and wrote: "Hey 2023….. this is me."

She went on to say: "Never complain. Never explain. Just crack on. @gorka_marquez (standard being everyone’s social media content man)".

Helen's former dance partner Gorka Marquez, 32, replied: "Sounds like a day of rehearsals," with several laughing emojis, while others shared their support for Helen.

One fan wrote: "Love this woman – total respect to her."

"Hope this is the best year for you Helen," another told the star.

Helen and Gorka reached the grand final together on this year's season of Strictly, with Hamza Yassin and his partner Jowita Przystał taking the trophy.
