Helen sold this antique vaulting horse
They included an antique vaulting horse, which was a wedding present, a Victorian dentist chair and two Art Deco armchairs.
She wanted to signal a “a new start” in her life, after her split in April from Rugby League ace Richie Myler, 32, the father of her three kids.
A source said: “Helen needed a huge sort out after the break-up and despite some of the items possessing many memories, she felt it was best she sold them on.”
Helen told how she wanted to turn the home in Leeds into two separate houses — one to live in, one to sell on.
On the show she says: “This is a great opportunity to get rid of a load of stuff.”
Her 18 lots fetched £965 at auction, which will be seen on Monday night on Really.
Helen told HOAR last month that Strictly has been like therapy following her marriage split, which was made more painful after ex Richie announced his new girlfriend Stephanie Thirkill, was pregnant.
She had said: “Strictly is probably quite overwhelming for a lot of people but for me, weirdly, I was actually in the best place to be in it.”
Helen is currently second favourite to win the series with partner Gorka Marquez, 32, as they prepare for tonight’s show.
