Just two weeks on from their glorious wedding celebrations, John Torode and Lisa Faulkner will be spending some time apart this weekend. And to make sure his new wife knows she will be missed, the MasterChef judge left her a sweet love note - which simply read "Hot chick" - in her pyjamas. "Hidden notes in folded pyjamas... @johntorodecooks. I will miss you this weekend," Lisa gushed in the caption. The former EastEnders actress later revealed that she was jetting off for the weekend to celebrate her friend Jason Milligan's 50th birthday.

The following day, Lisa shared her delight over getting married to John with her followers, telling them: "The happiest day of my life!!! Cue the wedding spam for the next few weeks! Apologies in advance. Yesterday I married the man of my dreams @johntorodecooks and we had the BEST Day EVER, filled with all our family and friends and such Love."

John added: "Officially married the girl of my dreams yesterday @lisafaulknercooks what a day!!" In July, Lisa spoke about her wedding plans, confessing she and John "both feel lucky that we've found each other." She told HELLO!: "He's a very different person to me. He is an alpha male in that he's a leader and provider. But then I'm probably very alpha female, and fiercely independent. But he'd say we're a team now. We both love yoga and looking after our bodies and mindfulness, as well as walking, eating, chatting, cooking. We look after each other, and that's because of hindsight – when you don't look after each other, things fall apart."
