"It's not like we don't argue," Lisa admits casually. "We bicker about things but it's never usually about food or cooking. It's usually if someone is tired or grumpy when they come back from work. But the kitchen is a place where we really don't argue – it's lovely."

The mother-of-one and stepmother-of-three discusses her husband with an undeniable mirth – often employing the phrase "lovely" to describe her marriage. "We don’t spend a lot of time together because John is filming or I'm filming – he's away or I'm working. So, to come together to cook on telly is really nice. We literally just cook and chat like we're at home. We're very lucky."

The most common genetic conditions in the world

  The most common genetic conditions in the world Following the global pandemic of COVID-19, everyone in the world learned to be hyperaware of their health, their hygiene, and taking all of the necessary precautions to avoid getting sick. Vaccinations, masks, diligent handwashing, and a vast number of other practices became common for large parts of the population. Sometimes, though, there's simply nothing to be done to avoid certain conditions. For instance, hereditary, genetic, and chromosomal conditions are something you're either born with, or you aren't. There's nothing that you or your parents can do–it's up to a roll of the genetic dice. Thankfully, genetic conditions aren't terribly common. Nonetheless, some are definitely more common, and some more serious, than others. Read on to learn about the 10 most common genetic conditions in the world.

Lisa Faulker on family life

Lisa loves a warming recipe to cook for her family at home

"It sounds sexist to say, but as a working mum, I seem to be the juggler. I'm constantly going, 'OK so what's after school or after college' or if I'm going away for the night to film, I feel like I have to do this and that – I'm juggling family life, a dog, recipe planning – it's difficult but fun."

When probed about what causes her and her husband to clash, she admitted with a smile: "We cook together so much. If you were to ask me who is the tidiest it would definitely be John. He's the cleaner-upper and he makes everything very neat. If we argue it's probably that I'm messy and he's neat."

Grand Designs viewers left in tears over emotional episode

  Grand Designs viewers left in tears over emotional episode Viewers took to Twitter to praise John, who built a £1.8 million pavilion-style home for his wife Helen, who needed more space and accessibility as she recovered from a stroke in 2018.Couple John and Helen, from Dunstable, had been living in a 17th century farmhouse since they married in 2007, having met at Newbury races two years earlier.

Diving deeper into her love story with John, Lisa makes a surprising confession upon meeting the MasterChef star: "I didn't know he was the one in any way! I'd met him a couple of times over the years, and I was terrified of him on MasterChef. He was so lovely and as we became friends I thought, he's really not scary at all. He's very gentle and always thinks about everybody else."

Lisa Faulker on fitness and aging

The question about how Lisa looks so effortlessly radiant is still hanging in the air – it's hard to get over luminous skin quite like that. The star candidly reflects on her recent milestone, turning 50, and how she maintains a healthy lifestyle.

Lisa turned 50 earlier this year

"It's difficult when you're in the public eye. I want to look good and look after myself so that I am around for as long as I can be. I try and eat healthily and watch what I'm drinking. That comes with age. It's also thinking well, I'm just going to enjoy myself."

Lisa Faulker on her new campaign

Speaking of enjoying herself, Lisa has been doing just that while creating five new delicious recipes for her campaign with Ocado.

Elvis: Lisa Marie shut down long-standing Graceland rumour 'That will never happen'

  Elvis: Lisa Marie shut down long-standing Graceland rumour 'That will never happen' Elvis Presley fans have asked this pressing question for years and The King's daughter Lisa Marie Presley has a definitive answer.Aside from the actual buildings themselves at Graceland, Lisa Marie owns the contents of the Memphis mansion, which include Elvis' awards, his clothes and all the artifacts on display to the public. There is also a vast, hidden vault on the property. The location is only known to a few people, but it contains a staggering array of archived items, documents and photographs.

"I wanted to use recipes where people can use up vegetables, A lot of people buy things for one recipe then it sits in the fridge, and they don’t know whether or how to use it again. It was about having inspiration to reuse ingredients in different recipes."

Lisa in encouraging an affordable and waste-free approach to cooking

She continued: "A lot of people think Ocado is at the more expensive end of the supermarket but actually it's really not. It's also great as it's all online. I've used them forever."

Before departing some final kitchen quirks such as a love for pineapple on pizza, coriander on everything (yep – everything) and a soft spot for Turkish delight, Lisa punchily offered up one more nugget of reflection.

"I feel very grateful and now that I'm fifty, I've learnt to say no more. I spent my whole life saying yes to everything, and now I think, I can't do that and sometimes I spread myself too thin. Fifty brings on the 'no's."

Well, bring on the 'no's and butternut squash noodles - but in the meantime, anyone fancy a bite to eat?
