Richie insists there was no crossover, that he started dating Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married and their baby is literally four months old.

“She thought her marriage was safe and she is totally shocked by what happened.”

Stephanie is the daughter of Andrew Thirkill, who is one of the wealthiest businessmen in Leeds and is worth an estimated £175 million.
