HELEN Skelton debuted a stunning new hairdo as she made her first public appearance since splitting form husband Richie Myler.
The TV star looked glam for the Sports Industry Awards in London last night, wearing a white dress and chunky gold jewellery.
Countryfile's Helen, 38, wore her blonde hair in a dramatic side parting, with highlights adding depth to her look.
She sipped from a glass of bubbly and smiled as she posed for pictures on the red carpet.
The outing comes days after The Sun revealed Helen hired a private investigator after she became suspicious about rugby league star Richie’s behaviour.
She revealed on social media last month the Leeds Rhinos ace, 31, had left her after nine years together.

We can also reveal Richie met Stephanie at a rugby dinner last autumn — when Helen was six months pregnant and left the event early.
