Sharing old pictures with fans, Lisa wrote: "3 years have gone by and it still feels like yesterday but not one day passes without you being missed and loved….

"RIP Pops, love you so much…"

Devastated Lisa, 45, was at 71-year-old Derek’s bedside along with mum Linda at the family home when he passed away from cancer.

The Strictly make-up artist had kept his illness a secret while going through a bitter divorce from Britain’s Got Talent host Ant.

Lisa’s dad is believed to have been diagnosed a year before his death.

His condition deteriorated and he was in and out of hospital before being discharged to die peacefully at home.

It added to an extremely difficult time for Lisa who went through a very public breakup from her husband Ant.

Since her split, Lisa has found happiness with new boyfriend electrician James Green.

The couple went public with their relationship in August 2020 and she recently shared a series of sweet snaps of James with her beloved dog Hurley.
