As Jordan Banjo carried the three tiered delight onto set complete with sparkler Lisa looked thrilled.

Earlier, Lisa explained why she had written her second book, following on from her debut, The Honesty Diet.
She said: “We can keep using words like diet and my first book was called The Honesty Diet because I wanted people to be honest and to tell the truth.
“I knew all the tricks and all the porky pies that people say and ‘that won’t hurt me’ so I put all that in the first book.
“But then I realised it’s forever, it’s for life.”
