Trinny and husband can't hide their misery after divorce announcement


TV fashion guru Trinny Woodall and her husband cut miserable figures today following the announcement of their divorce.

Woodall, 44, split from businessman Johnny Elichaoff, 48, after a string of arguments about her burgeoning work load.

The couple first started having relationship difficulties four months ago and have been to marriage guidance counselling in a bid to put their troubles behind them.
But despite desperate efforts, they have now called it a day.

Trinny Woodall and Johnny Elichaoff both stepped out without their wedding rings on the day it was revealed their nine-year marriage has come to an end

Woodall will continue to live in the couple's £2 million property in London's fashionable Notting Hill with their four-year-old daughter Lyla and Elichaoff's son Zak.

Elichaoff, who is planning to move out within weeks, cut a sombre figure as he left home today. His day went from bad to worse when, out and about in his wife's pink Mini Cooper, he received a parking ticket.

A spokesman for Woodall told the Mail last night: 'We can confirm that the couple have sadly decided to separate. For the sake of their children, they ask that their privacy is respected at this time'.

In recent months, Trinny has been prone to arrive at fashion events without her wedding ring and rumours of troubles in the marriage have been rife since the early summer.

In May, the Mail was told by Trinny's representatives at there were no problems in the marriage. However, just weeks later, it was reported that cracks were forming in relationship.

Close friends say that the relationship has been struggling for months under the weight of recovering alcoholic Trinny's heavy work commitments.

It's been very tearful and painful for them,' said a friend of the couple. 'It was taking longer and longer to make up after their arguments and eventually they took an inevitable toll.

'They've always been enormously committed and tried hard to overcome differences. But ultimately they couldn't. It's a raw and emotional time and they're being supported by friends and family. Their main priority is the children's welfare.

'They have both had problems in the past which are well documented. But the marriage difficulties have nothing to do with lifestyle issues. It is about two people not getting on as well as they did. There is absolutely no one else involved.'

Trinny - who rose to stardom with Susannah Constantine in shows like the BBC's What Not To Wear and ITV's Trinny And Susannah Undress - has told how she and entrepreneur Johnny have weathered storms in their relationship in the past.

'You have to keep talking to each other. Johnny and I had to deal with a difficult stage. But we now have a "business meeting" where we talk about our issues.,' she said.

During their marriage Trinny suffered two miscarriages and had nine IVF attempts before their daughter was born.

Two years ago, Elichaoff ended up in a California rehabilitation clinic to beat a dependence on prescription painkillers. He became hooked on them following 20 operations after a motorbike crash.

Trinny has also been through rehab for alcoholism from which she suffered from her late teens until she was 26 and still attends Alcoholics Anonymous.
