‘I am in my office all day, by myself. I’ll see Charles in the evening. It’s isolating being in this space so it’s really important, that thing of massaging your face.

‘Just having that moment of self-love. Massaging my face is a really ritualistic thing for me. Sometimes I use a metal tool.’

Earlier this month, Tinny paid tribute to her late ex-husband Johnny Elichaoff on the sixth anniversary of his death.

In November 2014, Elichaoff fell to his death from the roof of Whiteley’s Shopping Centre in West London after a business failure and a long addiction to painkillers following a motorbike accident in his 30s.

Trinny shared a touching photo of her late ex and their daughter Lyla, now 17, to mark the anniversary.

She penned, ‘Forever in our hearts ♥️ @lylaelichaoff @zakelichaoff,’ tagging their daughter and his son Zak from a previous relationship.

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a range of progressive neurological disorders, that is, conditions affecting the brain. 

There are many different types of dementia, of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common. Some people may have a combination of types of dementia.

Trinny and Elichaoff, who divorced in 2009, five years before his death aged 55, shared a daughter Lila, while Johnny also had a son, Zak, from a previous relationship.

Despite their split, the pair remained close even after Trinny began a relationship with art dealer Charles Saatchi, 77, in 2013.

The former couple married in 1999, but their marriage was marred by his struggle with addiction and their difficulties in conceiving.

Trinny underwent nine rounds of IVF and suffered two miscarriages before their daughter Lyla, now 17, was born.

Later, the couple had seven more attempts at IVF but she didn’t fall pregnant again.

‘He could be wonderful, but when you live with an addict you live with fear,’ she previously explained. ‘You dread the next phone call.

‘When I decided to divorce him it was a big decision because he wasn’t well, but there had been years of Johnny not being well.’

In November 2014, he fell to his death from a car park roof after he ‘lost everything’ in a series of failed oil investments

The drummer turned businessman had been talked down from the same spot 11 days previously and was sectioned briefly.

But he then returned to the shopping centre twice more in the space of five days before his death the next day.

The day Trinny learned of his death, her first thought was for their daughter, then nine, who was due home from school in a few hours’ time.

‘She knew there was something going on because there were so many people in the house,’ she recalled.

‘We sat on the bed and I gave her a hug and said, ”Dada’s died.”

Speaking to You magazine in 2017, Trinny said: ‘We do discuss Johnny and there are pictures of him everywhere and I’ll sometimes say ”Dada would have said…”
