She wrote: "Calling all staff at Premier Inn and restaurants, @GreatOrmondSt needs your help! Together, Premier Inn and GOSH Charity have made a life-changing difference to thousands of seriously ill children from across the UK.

"But every day more and more children need help. Every day, four families are told their child has cancer."

Lisa shared the emotional plea to social media

Earlier this year, the star shared a photo with her second husband, MasterChef host John Torode, that sparked pregnancy speculation.

The sweet snapshot showed the loved-up pair cuddled close together as they smiled for the camera.

Lisa wore a pair of khaki dungarees over a Breton striped top but in the caption, she made clear that her followers shouldn't read too much into the image.

The 50-year-old wrote: "Last episode of #johnandlisasweekendkitchen and no before you ask I don’t have something to tell you it’s just quite an unflattering shot of a great pair of dungarees [laughing emoji]."

The star went on: "Hope you enjoy the show. As I have said before @johntorodecooks and I love filming it and can’t wait to return to your screens with more!"

A couple of Lisa's followers admitted that they had been wondering if she was expecting, with one confessing: "I was wondering for one moment xx," and another teasing: "I literally zoomed in! Never mind, you could say it was a food baby!!! X."
