Lisa Faulkner and John Torode received an unexpected wedding gift on Thursday – seven months after tying the knot! While it may be late, it was certainly very much appreciated as it was a welcome addition to a birthday gift Lisa bought her husband last year. Taking to her Instagram Stories on Thursday, Lisa shared: "We have just been sent a wedding present, a really lovely wedding present actually from the people at Morso. So I bought Johnno this BBQ last year for his birthday, which we love and use all the time, and look what they gave us as a wedding present, which they've been waiting to give us because of COVID. Amazing. Thank you so much."

All the kitchen tools match in cast-iron black, with each saucepan finished with an oiled oak handle. There are also a number of storage jars, a pestle and mortar, flowerpots for herbs and a grill plate. What an amazing gift!
