The announcement received an excited response from many of Lisa’s fans and friends including Jamie Oliver’s wife Jools, who commented: "Looks fantastic well done u must feel so proud."

Watch Lisa talk to HELLO! and cook one of her recipes
Lisa is a mum to daughter Billie, 13, who she adopted while she was married to ex-husband Chris Coghill. "She is like a ray of sunshine who constantly surprises me," Lisa said of her daughter in an interview with HELLO!. "She’s kind, so funny and such a character."
Asked what had surprised her most about becoming a mum, she replied: "I never realised how very much my daughter would surprise me. Every day is something different, it's a challenge every day in a new way. I don't mean that in a bad way. You never know if you're getting it wrong or right. You just have to get in there and hope it comes out alright in the wash! And the other thing is… I said to Billie this morning, I never knew I could love somebody the way I love you."
