The happy couple have been engaged for more than two years, announcing their wedding news exclusively to HELLO! in January 2017.

The engagement was such a lovely surprise and the proposal was just perfect, it was at home - very private and low-key."
She continued: "Christmas was magical and George just took me away to New York to celebrate my birthday and set up a surprise party for me. I'm not sure when or where we will get married yet - it could be this year but if not it will definitely be next year. I can’t wait!"
In March, the TV star and her fiancé started suffering from coronavirus symptoms and self-isolated as a result. Once she was able to get out of bed, Lisa told Metro: "I feel so grateful to be out of bed and just to be able to breathe properly.
