“My own journey has shown me that with the right mindset and a lot of hard work, anything is possible.

“I’m really looking forward to sharing my experiences and hopefully helping some amazing businesses reach their full potential.”

Woodall rose to as a host on the show What Not To Wear with Susannah Constantine.

The fashion and beauty expert founded her own beauty brand Trinny London in 2017 which sells a range of products across skincare and make-up.
