Widnes rugby ace Richie Myler has wed former Blue Peter stunner Helen Skelton.

The couple, who have been  together since 2011, tied the knot  at Kirkby Thore’s St Michael’s  church in the TV presenter’s childhood village near Penrith  in Cumbria.

The 30-year-old arrived at the  church in a black Range Rover  and was greeted by a crowd of  well-wishers from the local village.

Before the event started Helen, who now fronts BT Sport,  tweeted: “In awe of (how) helpful  my friends, family and community are being about the wedding.

“They have sorted stuff I  haven’t thought of!”

She previously said: “We’ve  hired a big house for the reception, we’ve both got big families – so we’re just having a  house party. The church is  where all my family were  christened and where my gran  was a church organist.”

Helen walked into the church  wearing a sleeveless white  long-lace wedding dress which  had a silver satin belt around the  waist. she wore her hair in a  retro-style up-do, replete with  lace veil and a beaded headband  finishing off the look with silver  peep-toe heels.

She carried a floral bouquet of  white poppies and roses. Helen’s three bridesmaids  wore matching dark sequin  maxi dresses with capped  sleeves as they carried the back  of Helen’s dress for her.

Myler kept it simple with a  black suit, white shirt and bow  tie.

Helen, who left Blue Peter in  September, has previously revealed she would like to have  children. She said: “I’d love to  have babies one day. I couldn’t  have done Blue Peter and have  kids at the same time. I’d have  about four kids.”
