But who is the TV star's husband? Here's everything you need to know about Skelton's spouse.

Who is Helen Skelton's husband Richie Myler?

Helen Skelton, 37, is married to professional rugby league player Richie Myler.

Myler, 31, plays for rugby league giants Leeds Rhinos in the Super League, having began his professional career with the Widnes Vikings in 2007.

The Cheshire-born scrum-half has also been capped seven times by England since making his debut against Wales back in 2008 as part of the World Cup training squad.

The star most recently played for the national side in 2018, where he featured in test matches against France and New Zealand.

Myler was voted man of the match in the Rhinos' Challenge Cup final victory at Wembley stadium in October 2020.

When did Helen Skelton and Richie Myler get married?

The couple got engaged after the rugby league star got down on one knee and popped the question to Skelton in March 2012.

The pair got married almost two years later with an intimate wedding in December 2013.

The ceremony took place at Kirkby Thore's St Michael's church in Skelton's childhood village, not far from Penrith in Cumbria.

A number of well-wishes from the village joined friends and family outside the church where all her family were christened.

Her legal name is Skelton-Myler, but professionally she still uses the surname Skelton.

Do Helen Skelton and Richie Myler have children?

Since the star couple tied the knot in 2013, the family has grown with the arrival of two sons.

Their eldest son Ernie was born in June 2015, and in April 2017 Ernie became an elder brother with the arrival of Louis.

Ernie and Louis spent part of their early childhoods living in France after Myler signed for French club Catalans Dragons, based in Perpignan, in 2016.

The couple returned to the UK when Myler signed for his current club Leeds Rhinos in 2018, where the couple now reside with their two sons.
