On Instagram, the former 'Blue Peter' star expressed her sadness: "Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple. He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children. [broken-heart emojis] (sic)".

Later, in her autobiography 'In My Stride', Helen opened up about the shock she felt at the dissolution of their marriage, stating: "I was in shock." She reflected on the common disbelief people experience after a separation, saying: "I know that following break-ups, people often say they didn't see it coming and it sounds like a cliche, but that was me."

Despite the end of their marriage, Helen hopes that Richie will continue to play an active role in their children's lives. She expressed: "I want them to know that we loved each other, but things change and that's OK, too."
