The former Blue Peter presenter explained how her boys beat the heat at school with the help of their teacher. 

She wrote: ‘Told me his teacher let them put their feet in their trays full of cold water under the table in class at school.

‘Grateful mum. Hope you’re handling the heat,’ she gushed. 

Her post comes after she split from husband Richie in April after eight years of marriage.

The break up came just four months after the arrival of the couple’s third child, a baby daughter.

It was recently revealed Richie has begun a new relationship with the daughter of the multi-millionaire President of the Leeds Rhinos club he plays for.

Helen is said to feel ‘bewildered’ by the breakdown of her marriage to Richie, 31, whose new partner is Stephanie Thirkill, 32.

A source close to the couple told MailOnline: ‘Helen is absolutely devastated. Now she is contemplating life without him while he has moved on with his new partner.’

‘Richie is insisting there was no crossover, that he began the romance with Stephanie after their marriage collapsed, but Helen feels let down. They are still married, and their baby is literally four months old.

‘She thought their marriage was safe and secure and is totally shocked by what’s happened.’

Former Blue Peter star Helen confirmed their breakup on Instagram, writing: ‘Very sad to say that Richie and I are no longer a couple.

‘He has left the family home. We will be doing our best to co-parent our small children.’
