Lisa Riley is a well-known television actress. She was born in Bury, Greater Manchester, on July 13, 1976. She is currently 42 years old.
Lisa is her parents’ eldest child. Though her father’s identity is unknown, it has been revealed that her mother, Cath Riley, died in July 2012 of breast cancer.
Lisa had a close relationship with her mother. Her mother and she were more like best friends than mother and daughter.
Lisa paid tribute to her beloved mother Cath in an Instagram post on July 29, 2017, five years after her death. She stated in the caption that whenever her mother entered a room, she shone like the brightest light with boundless energy. Furthermore, she stated that her mother was a funny, witty, and insanely smart woman who always spoke her mind.
Lisa was raised with her younger brother Liam, who is married to Nat and has a two-year-old son named Jakey with her.
Lisa adores children and especially her nephew Jakey. However, in an interview with Mirror on 3 November 2013, Lisa admitted that she would never become a mother because she did not want her children to go through the same pain she went through when her mother died.
Relationship Status: Single?
Lisa, like the American actress Lisa Joyce, is not open about her love life. Nonetheless, she is discovered to be in a relationship.
Lisa gushed about her dating status in an interview with Ok Magazine in 2017. She revealed that her boyfriend’s name is Al and that he is a musician. She also revealed that she and her boyfriend met through mutual friends and had been together for three years at the time.
Lisa also thanked everyone for their support of her privacy. Lisa’s relationship with her boyfriend appears to be strengthening with each passing day, as they are now engaged. Lisa announced her engagement to her partner via Instagram on May 21, 2018.
In the photo, she wore her engagement ring and referred to her fiance as the love of her life. She also stated that falling in love with Al was the best thing that could have happened to her. Lisa, on the other hand, stated that they have no plans for a wedding because they are simply happy together.
Though Al is not yet Lisa’s legal husband, the couple is already in a married-like relationship.
Body Measurements: Height and Weight
Al is completely supportive of Lisa’s career and even her weight. Lisa was curvy when they first met. Instead of criticizing Lisa’s appearance, her fiance admired her for who she was.
Lisa previously wore a size 28. She exercised and changed her eating habits to lose more than half her body weight in the last two and a half years.
Lisa’s primary motivation for losing weight was a family genetic disorder that had been passed down through generations. She had become more concerned about her health since her mother’s death.
Lisa quit smoking, drinking, and had two rounds of surgery in February 2017 to remove excess skin from her stomach, legs, and arms.
Lisa, interestingly, revealed her diet plan on July 13, 2018. She admitted to eating hot water and lemon with porridge and honey for breakfast, butternut squash soup with coriander soup and oatcakes for lunch, and garlic and chili cod with roasted spinach and cauliflower for dinner.
Lisa has undoubtedly lost 12 stone by following healthy diet plans and being conscious of her health.
