We love Lisa's dream dinner party guest list, which she once revealed to The Sun. "I’d like to have John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, Madonna, Tracey Emin, Boy George and Nigella Lawson," said the star. What a night that would be!

What does Lisa Faulkner eat for breakfast?

Stylish Lisa, 49, seems to like a hearty meal to start the day, judging by her and John's recent Instagram posts.

John shared a photo of eggs on toast with the caption: "Breakfast .. the perfect egg .. thank you @lisafaulknercooks, along with a jar of vegemite what’s not to like."

Lisa posted a snap of her Huevos Rancheros which look seriously yummy.

She wrote: "This is my take on Huevos Rancheros, I love the fact that the tortillas (@ocado's own brand!) go crispy to make a spicy bowl of loveliness! I think this is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner. Who says eggs have to be for breakfast?"

What does Lisa Faulkner eat for lunch?

Like many of us, Lisa likes to tuck into tasty soups and salads for her midday meal.

The star shared a picture of her roasted veggie soup with garlic bread croutons, telling followers: "Honestly a great lunch and really easy as you just stick it in the oven and any home schoolers will love the garlic bread on top."

The former Holby City actress also posted a photo of her salmon lunch, writing: "Here’s my pan-fried Salmon, Pea and Horseradish Potato salad recipe that I love making as a weekend lunch – the lemon butter is a complete winner as well."

And in an interview with The Mirror, Lisa revealed that the couple love a toastie. "We bought a Breville machine as a treat," said Lisa. "We’re always comparing our favourite foods from childhood, but I often say things he’s never heard of – but we both loved a Breville."

"It has to be white bread, sliced processed cheese, tomato and onion," added John.

What does Lisa Faulkner eat for dinner?

Living with professional chef John Torode - and having won Celebrity MasterChef herself, Lisa is used to some top-rate home suppers.

Lisa told The Mirror: "I’m really lucky to live with a chef. He literally makes the best steak on Earth. If I say I fancy a prawn curry one night, John will just whip one up."

The star also shared one of her favourite dinners, linguine bake, on her Instagram page, telling fans:

"It's a family favourite in our house and my daughter loves it when she gets a portion with hidden nuggets of melted mozzarella in. I've used @ocadouk own range mozzarella here and just chopped it up into small pieces and scattered it amongst the pasta."
