She continued to say: "I love to eat but I do like to cook," subsequently citing chicken as her go-to dish if she's making an effort. She continued to elaborate on how she infuses her healthy dishes with flavour, using seasoning such as chilli and garlic to enhance the taste of 'health freak' Mark's clean food requests.

Despite the star joking about her husband's healthy diet, she also embraces clean eating. The self-professed foodie admitted that she was more of a savoury person, stating that her last meal would consist of garlic prawns and bread to start, a hearty chip butty with an array of condiments for her main and an expansive cheese board for dessert.

Mark and Michelle follow a healthy lifestyle 

Listeners were delighted to discover that Michelle was a keen chef – a trait she inherited from her chef mother who later became the head chef at Michelle's school growing up. She claimed that her mother's go-to homemade dishes included moussaka, Chinese chicken and shepherd's pie, which is quite the spread!

The star says she does allow herself the occasional cheat day 

The actress explained why Mark may not indulge in such deliciously heavy dishes, saying: "Because he's on camera now he's more conscious of [his weight] than he was."

Yet, despite the couple's health-forward lifestyle, Michelle previously told Cosmopolitan: "I never feel guilty when I eat cheat food because if I've been quite strict all week, I feel like I deserve it. I'm a proper foodie, I love my food." After all, it's all about balance, right Michelle?
