Countryfile host Helen Skelton, 36, has revealed her other half Richie Myler has been so distracted by working on renovating their new home that they haven’t spent much time together since the beginning of the year. The presenter shared a snap of herself and her rugby player husband getting to work on the property in view of her 183,000 Instagram followers.

In the black and white photo, Helen could be seen wearing a mask over her nose and mouth while Richie posed in the background holding a drill.

Helen opened up about the situation in the caption, which read: “Got the keys third week of January… haven’t seen much of him since… a blessing or a curse in lockdown…”

The Blue Peter star explained the couple have been having a few disagreements about how to resolve certain issues during the process.

Helen also insisted that the type of home they have purchased has naturally been throwing “a few curve balls” into the job for the pair.

She added: “I don’t mind a drenching but he’s less convinced…….(sic)
