She simply wrote in the caption, "Four months..." and used the hashtags #dadda #myhero and #love alongside three crying emojis.

In the comments, Lisa's loyal followers shared messages of support.

One said, "Big hugs, you've not had it easy lately", while someone else wrote, "He was very proud of you Lisa" and another put, "Handsome man, Lisa. He's looking down on you".

Presenter Kate Thornton commented, "Sending love" with two heart emojis.

Lisa was reportedly at her dad's bedside when he passed away, aged 71, at the family home in Oxford in the spring.

According to The Sun he died following a battle with cancer, with a source telling the publication: "A lot of people think Lisa is strong, and she is — but she's had so much to cope with since she and Ant [McPartlin] split up.

Four months...

"There's been one thing after another and at times she's felt on her knees. But she's kept it together and ploughed on.

"To do all of that whilst knowing your dad is seriously ill and on borrowed time is quite something. It would break most people."

Lisa's dad is believed to have been diagnosed in 2018 and his condition deteriorated in the months leading up to his death.

Just two weeks later, Lisa showed her followers how strong she is with a stress-free selfie.

Fans were quick to compliment the star, who has had a tough time of it this past year as she endured a high-profile split from husband of 11 years Ant McPartlin and then watched him go public with his new partner, their former personal assistant Anne-Marie Corbett.
