Helen Skelton enjoyed a well-deserved night out this evening after the devastating news of their wedding breakdown.

The Countryfile singer was glammed to attend the Sports Industry Awards at Evolution in London on Thursday, marks its first red carpet appearance since announcement she and estranged husband Richie Myler had split.

Helen, 38, looked relaxed and smiled a big smile for the photos as she posed in her elegant fluffy cream dress paired with thick jewelry and black heels.

She looked strikingly different with her blonde hair that was now exchanged for a sharper color and highlights of pastel pink and purple.

However, Helen was not alone on the red carpet, as she later joined Sky Sports presenter Bela Shah, who posed for photos with a striking strapless pink dress.

Once in the bash, she bumped into BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, who was wearing a tuxedo in a blue velvet coat.

It is the first major public event that Helen has attended since sharing the shocking news that she is no longer with rugby star Richie, 31.

‘Very sorry to say that Richie and I are not a couple anymore. He left the family home. We will do our best to help our little ones, ‘she wrote in her Instagram stories on April 26.

The presenter later revealed her wedding ring in a sponsored ad she posted on her social media.

Helen and Richie were married for eight years and share three children; Ernie, six, Louis, four, and daughter Elsie Kate who was born in December.

Richie has not publicly commented on the split, but is reported to have started a new relationship with the president’s daughter of his rugby club Leeds Rhinos.

Sources say he and Stephanie Thirkill are having a romance following his marriage, and previously told The Sun: ‘Richie seems to have spent much of his free time with this younger, successful businesswoman.’

The rumored new couple were spotted going for a country walk earlier this week, marking the first time they are pictured together since the news of his divorce from Helen broke.
