Countrylife star Helen and Richie previously lived in north Leeds, which she has now put on the market as she makes a fresh start.

The breath-taking property includes two interconnecting homes which comprise eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, four reception rooms, and an outdoor heated pool.

In addition to changes in her home and work life, sources claim Helen has also decided to start dating again.

A source told Daily Mail: "Helen's family and friends encouraged her to get back out there and she was happy to dip her toe back into the dating scene, but she has had some wobbles and found herself feeling guilty.

"She's concerned about who to let into her life and worried about being judged for any decisions she makes.

"There have also been some people who have made comments about her not trying hard enough to make it work with Richie, and it's made her think about her marriage and what went wrong."

Daily Star has contacted Helen's representatives for comment.
