Helen separated from her partner Richie Myler in April.

Helen and Richie had been married for eight years prior to their split, with the couple also sharing three children.

Rugby star Richie, 32, has since moved on with his new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill, with the pair recently enjoying a getaway break together.

Helen is rumoured to have joined the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing following her whirlwind year.

According to The Sun, the opportunity to do Strictly would be the “perfect way” for the BBC presenter “to bounce back" following Helen’s public split.

A source told the publication: “It’s the perfect way to bounce back. Most people are absolutely desperate to avoid the Strictly curse, but Helen would love it to give her some confidence back.

“She’s a great signing for the show and enormously popular with viewers, especially after what has happened to her lately."

Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, Helen previously said: “It’s one of those shows I think that is such a, you know, in terms of a telly gig, it’s the biggest and the best.

“[It has] a fantastic makeup team, a fantastic costume team and a fantastic lighting team.”

The mum-of-two added: “I think anybody who works in telly would find it very difficult how to say no to it.”

The 38-year-old appeared on the Christmas Special in 2012 alongside professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev, scoring an impressive 37 out of 40.

The latest name to have been announced is EastEnders actor James Bye.

The actor will join names including Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh, Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps’ Will Mellor and Paralympian Ellie Simmonds.
