Those trendy British fashionistas, Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine, did a quick turnaround on their most recent trip to Israel, filming another season of “Trinny and Susannah in Israel” for Channel 10.

The premiere opens as Trinny and Susannah walk into the Ramat Gan residence of British ambassador Matthew Gould. The ambassador, seated in an armchair holding a cat and barely containing a smirk, tells them that he needs their help making over Israel’s fashion have-nots.

From there, Trinny and Susannah are off, working with their emotionally bereft, fashion-needy customers over the course of several meetings. The final episode was also filmed at Gould’s residence, as the glammed-up, made-over participants model their new look in front of their loved ones.

Woodall and Constantine told a reporter from “Good Evening with Guy Pines” that they’ve become Israeli ambassadors themselves, having gotten to know Israel during their visits.

“People are scared to come and they have misconceptions, and once they get here they fall in love with it,” said Constantine, who brought her 14-year-old son, Joe, with her.

Constantine joked that her son told her he wants to become Jewish, because he likes the weather, food and culture in Israel.

Woodall, who brought her 10-year-old daughter, Lyla, with her as well, said her daughter fits in so well in Israel, she “could be a local.”

Lyla Elichaoff is half-Israeli, as she is the child of Johnny Elichaoff, Woodall’s ex-husband, an Israeli musician turned financial adviser who played with U2 and died last November after falling from the roof of a department store.

Trinny and Susannah, Mondays, Channel 10, 9 p.m.
