Lisa Faulkner and John Torode may have only got engaged a matter of months ago, but it seems as though the pair are in no rush to hurry down the aisle.

Or rather, the couple have no spare time to actually organise their upcoming nuptials!

Cook Lisa admitted to The Sun recently that their wedding plans are yet to begin after their December engagement, simply because she and her future husband have been so busy.

However, the plans are only on hold, with Lisa revealing that once April is over she will be stepping up the wedding organisation.

She admitted, "I've been so busy with writing and doing the show. Once I've got Easter out the way I can start planning."

Lisa also spoke about what it's like working with her fiance, admitting that it's 'so nice' to work together and have a private life together.

She said, "There's no bad side to working with John. It's so nice to travel into work together and chat all day, then continue chatting at home.

"He's my best mate and it's lovely to stand next to him and think he's got me and I've got him."

The pair will soon be working together much more too, as they prepare to launch their very own TV show, John and Lisa's Weekend Kitchen.

The new ITV programme will be launching on 31st March, and will see the couple making plenty of traditional recipes, including cakes, jam and bread.

On This Morning recently, TV chef John revealed, "The idea is really to go back to basics and things like making cakes and jam, and actually trying to get the nation back to being relaxed about food rather than being worried about it.

"Food should be from the heart, and that’s what we are trying to do."

We'll certainly be tuning in!
