The post comes shortly after Lisa opened up about her own mental health in a candid confession. Sharing an Instagram photo of some chocolate cake that she baked for her and her daughter Billie, Lisa captioned the image: "Felt a little blue this afternoon… back to school feeling I suppose so I baked a chocolate cake for my girl with no icing just the way we like it and we sat and had cups of tea and cake and watched old eps of #gavinandstacey. Don't know if I'm ready to go back to work and her go back to school. I have loved these holidays. I have to say the chocolate cake made us feel much better!!!"
