Despite wearing minimal make-up, Lisa still added a touch of glamour as she indulged in a spot of R&R, thanks to her fun sunglasses that came with diamontes all around the edge.

According to The Sun, they only informed those attending the wedding of when and where it’ll take place as they want to keep details under wraps.
A source speaking to the publication claimed: ‘Neither of them want the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding. They just want their nearest and dearest with them.
‘It will be a simple but beautiful ceremony, without the glare of the spotlight. They’re both extremely excited and can’t wait to tie the knot.
‘But they’re desperate to keep a lid on things. Those who know have been told it’s top secret.’
Ant’s engagement to Anne-Marie was announced on New Year’s Eve after the presenter popped the question in a romantic Christmas Eve proposal. It’s believed Ant designed Anne-Marie’s engagement ring himself – paying up to £200,000 for the rock.

Despite rising to fame in girl group Deuce, she thinks she’s much ‘better backstage’ than in the spotlight and has no intentions of crossing back over.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, Lisa revealed that she turned to make-up, as she craved a career with ‘longevity’ following her girlband days.
‘It just got to the point where I’ve been there, done that and I wanted something with longevity. I took myself back to college, got a job in a pub and did a make-up diploma. I wanted to be part of the arts, but in a different position. It’s hard work and you’re only as good as your last job,’ she explained.
Asked if she’d ever star on Strictly as a celebrity dancer, Lisa said: ‘Oh god no, I think I’m better off backstage. I’m not in a celebrity capacity and I think you have to be a celebrity to even warrant being on [Strictly Come Dancing].
‘I am better off creating the looks than any fancy footwork.’
