Speaking from bed, Lisa said: "Good morning, happy Saturday. I'm in my little hotel room, which is very nice, in Hull. I've got a cup of tea. And I'm awake early! And I didn't need to be. And I could have slept but I couldn't sleep in. Which is really [coughs] annoying. That's not coronavirus. Really annoying. I wanted to be able to sleep in but I can't. So I'm having a tea, looking at Insta. I might read my book for a bit, and then do a bit of yoga, before I get on the train."

Lisa often keeps her fans up to date with her day-to-day life, and loves to share both the little and big things with her followers. However during her appearance on Wednesday’s Lorraine, it was a more serious topic. Lisa opened up about her failed attempts at IVF, which left her in a constant state of "angst".
The TV star – who later adopted daughter Billie, 14, with ex-husband Chris Coghil – discussed her fertility issues and explained how she keeps her mental health in check. "I struggled with lots and lots of IVF which failed and going through the adoption process, which meant I was always stressed and in this angst," the 48-year-old said. "For me, wellness and mental health means self-care. We all struggle at times in our life with anxiety and stress and feeling below par. To me, I have to keep that in touch."
