Helen Skelton ‘bags over a MILLION pounds from her kids’ clothing line’… following announcement her ex-husband Richie Myler is having a baby

Helen Skelton has reportedly bagged herself over a million pounds from her kids’ clothing line, Toy Breaker.

The presenter, 39, is thought to have a whopping £474,667 in the bank of her company, Helen’s Skelton Production Ltd, after paying £185,955 in corporation tax over the past three years.

It comes after the Countryfile host was pictured breaking down as it was revealed her ex-husband Richie Myler is having a baby with new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill – just six months after he left the family home.

Her earnings over that time calculate to be £978,710 at a 19% rate, according to The Sun.

MailOnline has contacted Helen’s representatives for comment. 

The Strictly Come Dancing contestant previously told Celeb Mix of her range: ‘It was back at the start of the pandemic that I first had the idea of doing a kids range.

‘One of my best friends was working for a fast fashion brand at the time, but was looking to change what she was doing, so whilst we were talking one day and I was telling her how I can never get my kids to wear anything other than a football kit, the idea to do a kids line came to us and we just thought why not.

‘It’s funny to think about it now, because everything that’s followed after and where we find ourselves now, all came from that initial conversation.’

A variety of products are displayed on the website, including a leopard pocket t-shirt which costs £18.99 and a vintage sweatshirt retailing for £15.59.

Helen, who shares three children with ex Richie, was reportedly told of the baby news before Stephanie, 32, announced it on social media.

The news of the pregnancy comes just six months after Helen announced Richie, 32, with whom she shares three children, had left the family home.

The presenter and the rugby league player welcomed their third child in December last year.

Helen, who is currently appearing on Strictly Come Dancing, was reportedly told of the baby news before Stephanie, 32, announced it on social media.

She was seen wiping her eyes while grabbing a coffee ahead of going to rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing with her pro partner Gorka Marquez.

Former Blue Peter presenter Helen and Richie are said to be maintaining ‘cordial relations’ for the sake of their children.

Richie ended his eight-year marriage to Helen back in April, just four months after Helen gave birth to their third child, and quickly moved on with Stephanie.

A source told The Sun that 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 togethe

‘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.

It’s thought that Stephanie is already displaying a noticeable bump on social media.

MailOnline contacted Helen and Richie’s representatives for comment at the time.
