It comes as Trinny revealed she finds it “upsetting” when people assume her multi-millionaire boyfriend Charles Saatchi is funding her Trinny London beauty business.
Speaking in a candid new interview, the fashion and makeover expert shared how she ‘shed sweat and tears of blood’ into her brand during a ‘difficult time in her life’.
She also recounted in a separate Honest Chat how she had to sell her house and clothes to get the initial investment money to start her now successful business and make a comeback after facing financial difficulties.

The presenter told The Times of her hard work: ‘People always assume Trinny London is funded by my boyfriend. The reality is that I shed blood, sweat and tears on it during a very difficult time in my life.
“It annoyed me. You don’t want anyone to make assumptions that you know are incorrect. I used to fight them very hard. Now I think: it’s your shit, not mine.
Trinny and Saatchi – who is worth an estimated £170million – have been dating since 2013, following the businessman’s divorce from celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.
Trinny launched Trinny London – a beauty and skincare brand in 2017 – not without difficulties.

After facing financial difficulties following the death of her ex-husband Johnny Elichaoff while trying to start the business, she raised £60,000 by selling items from her own wardrobe and possibly from her own home.
She told the Telegraph: ‘I wasn’t earning the money I had. I couldn’t afford the house I was living in, so I rented it out and sold a lot of my clothes.
“I then made a small increase, which I used for product development. When that ran out, I sold other clothes, then I sold my house, because I couldn’t pay the mortgage.
‘It took bullets – it was very scary. But I knew I had no alternative. No one becomes a great entrepreneur from a comfortable place.
