EXCLUSIVE Trinny Woodall hints at splitting from partner Charles Saatchi after 10 years by revealing she has “moved house” during an 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 his wife Nigella Lawson, but the makeup and beauty mogul said on Instagram on Friday that he had “moved house “.
She posted: “It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new life.” She added: “I’ve been moving, but now I’ve moved.”
He is currently on a ski holiday with his family in France, where they have a chalet.
Sounding emotional, Trinny said, “I’ve been looking at this view for the last 30 years of my life.” It’s the only consistent view I’ve ever had.

Trinny Woodall has sparked speculation that she and long-term love Charles Saatchi have split and revealed on Instagram that she has moved on.
Trinny (pictured yesterday) is on a ski vacation with her family in France.
Trinny and Charles Saatchi (pictured together in 2015) have been in a relationship for ten years, but they may have broken up. Saatchi has declined to comment.
Saatchi, a publicist turned art collector, is said to be worth around £100 million. Trinny’s worth is unknown, but her skincare and beauty brand is said to be worth £180 million and rising. She declined to comment yesterday.
In an interview in 2021, Trinny said she had “grown a lot” in the relationship, saying, “I don’t let myself get away with it, so if I have any kind of outrage, she’ll be like, ‘Seriously, are you kidding me?'” And then I go upstairs and think, “Okay, let me grow now.”
“I think that’s what happens when you’re with someone who’s been through a lot in their life, and there’s no one who’s more supportive of my business and my work in terms of being my champion.”
The couple began dating in 2013 after Saatchi’s first wife, Kay Hartenstein, reportedly made a short list of women she would like to date.
He had been single since splitting with food writer Nigella Lawson, shortly after photos were published showing Saatchi grabbing her by the neck during lunch at Scott’s in Mayfair.
He explained at the time that it was a “joke fight” and accepted a police reprimand.
Trinny shared the view from her French home, saying she enjoyed it for decades and found it “very healing.”
He later said that he was just helping Nigella ‘focus’, but Nigella explained that she had seen a cute baby go by in a pram and said that she was looking forward to becoming a grandmother, which led to an argument.
She told a court that he told her: ‘I’m the only person you should worry about.’ Nigella added that her ex-husband had “told everyone” that she was actually pumping cocaine up his nose.
Three months after the affair began, Trinny had partly moved into Saatchi’s house in Chelsea.
In 2014, Trinny’s ex-husband, Johnny Elichaoff, committed 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’m worried about being a single mother, but I get some good advice from Charles. She has a fabulous daughter, Phoebe, who is incredibly kind and intelligent. She has a great girl because he raised her well.
He offered a rare glimpse into their relationship when he told a podcast in 2021: “Any friend who’s known me for years will know that I’m the most self-sufficient person they’ve ever met.” I know how hard I work.
‘I know that I pay for everything in my life apart from the roof over my head because I live with Charles. I take care of everything I pay for and every element of what I put against business expenses.’
In 2020, Saatchi inadvertently walked in naked while doing a live broadcast on an LED face mask.
