The actress captioned the pic: “Thank you so very much to the lovely docs and nurses yesterday #stmaryshospitalpaddington for looking after my @johntorodecooks who is very bruised but doing well! #luckyescape #blessed”

The 44-year-old did not reveal the cause of John’s injuries when she posted a picture of him in a hospital bed and stated he “is very bruised but doing well”.

John has now taken to Twitter to reveal what actually happened.

He thanked the NHS staff for their car and then revealed that he “took a tumble whilst out riding…”

Who knew the chef was such a keen horse rider!?

John and Lisa both became single after separating from their spouses.

They were said to have started dating in late 2012 after meeting on Celebrity MasterChef and it was John who apparently made the first move.

Lisa told Now magazine: “Both single, one day he just asked me out for a date. I just said ‘Yeah, all right’ and it was one of those moments when we both started smiling.”

It was only until 2013 that the new couple made their first public appearance together at a film premiere with Lisa’s adopted daughter Billie.

The super loved-up couple are constantly posted gushing messages to each other on social media and seem happier than ever!

We doubt he’ll be getting on the horse any time soon…
