Strictly Come Dancing’s Helen Skelton beams

They are gearing up for the next live Strictly Come Dancing show on Saturday night.

And Helen Skelton and Molly Rainford both flashed big smiles as they left their hotel this morning ahead of their upcoming performances.

Countryfile presenter Helen, 39, looked in great spirits as she stepped out wearing a grey hoodie, tight leggings and comfortable black trainers.

Meanwhile singer Molly, 21, looked in equally as good spirits and showed off her sense of style in a purple sports jacket and black leggings.

She wore her blonde tresses in loose waves and opted to go makeup free while carrying a large suitcase with her. 

Also spotted leaving the hotel on Saturday morning were Fleur East, Dianne Buswell, Ellie Taylor, Nancy Xu and Kym Marsh.

It comes after Helen opened up about how the end of her eight-year marriage to Richie Myler left her ‘battle-hardened’.

The television star claimed it was the ‘best’ time for her to join Strictly Come Dancing.

She told The Sun she had previously been approached but turned down the opportunity, but said it’s ‘the most brilliant thing to be a part of’. 

Helen explained: ‘I came into this show quite battle-hardened.

‘Strictly is probably quite overwhelming for a lot of people but for me, weirdly, I was actually in the best place to be in it.

‘Other people were worried about all the attention that comes with being on Strictly, or baring their souls on the telly, whereas I was ready for that.’

The Countryfile star then explained she needs to ‘exercise her brain’ to keep her head in check which is what Strictly is doing for her. 

It came after it was reported Helen’s estranged husband Richie is expecting a child with his new girlfriend Stephanie, six months after he split from Helen.

Richie ended his eight-year marriage to Countryfile host Helen back in April, just four months after she gave birth to their third child.

He is now expecting a baby with new girlfriend Stephanie, 32, who he was first reported to be seeing just days after his split from Helen was revealed.

The former couple are maintaining ‘cordial relations’ and Helen was reportedly told of the news before Stephanie announced it publicly on social media.  

A source told The Sun Stephanie and Richie are ‘thrilled’ to be expecting their first child, just six months after their relationship came to light.

They added: ‘Stephanie and Richie are obviously thrilled. They have moved very quickly but are extremely happy together.

‘The timing of the pregnancy may raise a few eyebrows though. It is obviously such a huge step, and one made remarkably quickly off the back of Helen and Richie’s eight-year marriage ending.

‘But Richie and Helen maintain cordial relations, and in a way the timing is actually perfect as Helen is so happy at the moment.’

The source added that Helen is ‘far too busy’ focusing on her training and rehearsals for Strictly.

Richie has two young sons Ernie, seven, Louis, five, and daughter Elsie Kate, nine months, with his estranged wife Helen.  

His relationship with Stephanie came to light in May, days after it was announced that his eight-year marriage to Helen was over.

Helen was said to feel ‘bewildered’ by the breakdown of her marriage, with a source close to the couple telling MailOnline: ‘Helen is absolutely devastated.’

They continued: ‘Now she is contemplating life without him while he has moved on with his new partner.
