‘That’s why I’m creating my own little ecosystem. I’ve collected many beautiful things in my life and always take them with me when I move. The ornate fireplace that Ronnie and I had in our home in Richmond has travelled with me to different residences, and looks beautiful here, too.’
Following her split from Ronnie, the blonde started dating builder Paul Scarborough after he renovated her North London townhouse in 2012, before they called it quits five years later.
