Episode 121: Trinny Woodall

Trinny Woodall is the CEO of the beauty brand Trinny London - she's an entrepreneur, businesswoman and author.


She became a household name in the late 90s when she teamed up with Susannah Constantine to present the TV makeover show What Not to Wear.


Last year she published her book Fearless about how to find your style and boost your confidence.


She has a 20 year old daughter Lyla, who she describes as joyful, and she told me how, without her own roadmap to motherhood, she found a way to bring Lyla up, with the help of a wonderful woman called Jenny,

We had an honest and fascinating talk in the attic room of her home in West London, which doubles as an office and a dressing room, full of colourful clothes.


Trinny has just celebrated her 60th birthday and is as vibrant and fun as you could hope for. We sat there together, in our pyjamas, just after she'd shown me her microneedling tool, and I really understand why people open up to her and tell her their innermost secrets!


Spinning Plates is presented by Sophie Ellis-Bextor, produced by Claire Jones and post-production by Richard Jones.
