EXCLUSIVE Trinny Woodall hints she has split with partner Charles Saatchi after 10 years by revealing she has ‘moved house’ during emotional Instagram video – saying: ‘It’s a new dawn, it’s a new life’
Trinny Woodall has sparked speculation that she and long-term love Charles Saatchi have split.
Trinny, 59, has been dating Saatchi, 79, for 10 years – since he split from wife Nigella Lawson – but the make-up and beauty mogul said on Instagram on Friday that she has ‘moved house’.
She posted: ‘It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new life.’ She added: ‘I have been moving but now I have moved.’
She is currently on a skiing holiday with her family in France where they own a chalet.
An emotional sounding Trinny said: ‘I have looked out at this view for the last 30 years of my life. It’s the one consistent view I have ever had. Recently with the big life change and moving house it was important for me to come back here with (daughter) Lyla and family just to have that moment, listen to the birds, be at one with nature. Very healing.’

Saatchi, an ad-man turned art collector, is said to be worth around £100 million. Trinny’s worth isn’t known but her beauty and skincare brand is said to be worth £180million and rising. He declined to comment yesterday.
In an interview in 2021, Trinny said that she had ‘grown up a lot’ in the relationship saying: ‘I don’t let myself get away with stuff, so if I have a kind of outrage he’ll go: “Really, are you kidding?” And then I’ll go upstairs and think: “OK, let me grow up now.”
‘I think that’s what happens when you are with somebody who has been through a lot in their life, and there is nobody who is more supportive of my business and jobs in terms of being my champion.’
The couple started dating in 2013 after Saatchi’s first wife, Kay Hartenstein, reportedly drew up a short list of women who he might like to date.
He had been single since splitting from food writer Nigella Lawson, soon after photographs were published which showed Saatchi holding her by the throat during a lunch at Scott’s in Mayfair.
He explained at the time that it was a ‘playful tiff’ and accepted a police caution.
He later said that he was just helping Nigella to ‘focus’ but she explained that she had seen a cute baby go past in a pushchair and said that she was looking forward to becoming a grandmother, which sparked an argument.
Trinny shared the view from her French home and said she had enjoyed it for decades and found it was ‘very healing’

She told a court that he said to her: ‘I’m the only person you should be concerned with.’ Nigella added that her former husband had ‘told everyone’ that he was actually taking cocaine out of her nose.
Within three months of the romance starting, Trinny had partly moved into Saatchi’s Chelsea home.
In 2014, Trinny’s former husband Johnny Elichaoff died by suicide. He had been battling an addiction to painkillers for 20 years. They have a daughter Lyla, 19, together.
In an interview Trinny said: ‘I worry about being a single mother, but I get good counsel from Charles. He has a fabulous daughter Phoebe who is incredibly gracious and smart. He’s got a great child because he brought her up well.’
She offered a rare insight into their relationship when she told a podcast in 2021: ‘Any friend who’s known me for years will know I’m the most self-sufficient person they’ve ever met. I know how hard I work.
‘I know I pay for every single thing in my life apart from the roof over my head because I live with Charles. Every single thing I pay for and every element of what I put against business expenses I’m careful of.’
In 2020, Saatchi inadvertently walked into shot naked while she was doing a live stream about an LED face mask.
