Television presenter and fashion expert Trinny Woodall has reportedly suffered a personal tragedy this week when her ex-husband and father of her daughter fell to his death at a shopping centre in London.
Trinny Woodall's ex-husband, Johnny Elichaoff, was reportedly talked off the same ledge he appears to have fallen to his death from. The incident allegedly occurred two weeks before Elichaoff's death on Wednesday (12th November).

Elichaoff was pronounced dead near Whiteley's shopping centre in Bayswater, West London, according to reports in the Mirror. It is believed Elichaoff fell from the roof of a multi-storey car park at the shopping centre. The incident occurred at 9.30am on Wednesday morning, according to a statement from Scotland Yard.
What does this mean for Nigella's intended American domination.
UK fans have mostly forgotten about Nigella Lawson’s drugs scandal from last year, but her record is far from clean – at least as far as US authorities are concerned. The celebrity cook has been banned from crossing into US territory and she found out the hard way. Lawson was blocked at Heathrow when trying to board a plane to the states on Sunday morning, the Daily Mail reports.
Nigella may have left the trouble behind her... but not everyone has.
The self-styled “domestic goddess” was forced to confess under oath during a trial last year that she had snorted cocaine seven times and smoked cannabis on numerous occasions – a fact, which hasn’t affected her public persona in any major way, but might still harm her career. Scotland Yard didn’t take any action on the case last year, but US authorities might not be as lenient. When trying to board her plane last weekend, Lawson was blocked mere steps away from the British Airways jet. She is thought to have checked in and passed security before being told she could not board her plane.
Nigella Lawson has been denied entry to the US reportedly for admitting to drug use whilst testifying at her personal assistants' fraud trial last year.
Nigella Lawson was denied entry to the US seemingly for admitting she had used cocaine in a court case last year. The 54-year-old allegedly attempted to board a plane to Los Angeles from Heathrow but was informed, once she was through security, that she would not be able to enter the US if she boarded the plane. The incident occurred at around 5am on Sunday morning (30th March).

Sources, speaking to a British tabloid, claimed Lawson was forced to return to the first class check in and wait for her baggage to be returned. The aforementioned source claimed Lawson "didn't seem to say much, but she did not look happy," adding "she could not get on the flight so she had to turn around and leave."

Charles Saatchi versus Taki? Let's get it on.
Charles Saatchi, whose marriage to Nigella Lawson fell apart after he was photographed with his hand on her throat at a popular Chelsea restaurant, has challenged a columnist at The Spectator to a cage fight. The 70-year-old art collector wrote to the magazine in response to a piece by Taki Theodoracopulos, 77, who suggested that, "expecting a pornographer to have a heart is like counting upon Charles Saatchi to act like a gentleman."

Writing in his column on 18 Janaury, Taki said Saatchi had a "coward's bullying manner" though in a vitriolic response in Wednesday's magazine, Saatchi said it was "hapless of you to spring to Nigella's defence last week, as she always found you toe-curlingly vile, and would have been aghast at having you as her valiant supporter."

Those who love the judges will probably love the show too.
The UK version of The Taste, which Americans got to see way back in 2012, is the talk of the internet today. And after last night’s premiere, there’s one part of the programme that everyone is in love with – Nigella Lawson. The reviewers have varying opinions on Nigella’s fellow judges Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre, but Nigella herself seems to be attracting universal love.
For some, it's the dynamic between all three judges that makes The Taste watchable.
“Nigella Lawson seemed easily the sanest, nicest of the panel,” The Telegraph’s Christopher Howse writes. He continues: “But I’d far rather see Nigella cook on television than sit on a gameshow like this, beauty wedged between two ravening, foul-mouthed beasts.”
