Lisa Faulkner, 50, has spoken out about the BBC’s decision to end Holby City for good back in March, after 23 years on the air.The former Celebrity MasterChef winner, who is married to the show’s judge John Torode, 57, admitted she was “really sad” to see the soap get axed, in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk. Lisa played Victoria Merrick on the show from January 1999 to June 2001.Victoria was a senior house officer who trained in cardiothoracic surgery and paediatrics at Holby City Hospital.Two years after joining the show, Lisa’s character was stabbed to death in her own home by the father of a patient whose life she could not save.The star appeared in 45 episodes of the show early on in her acting career, which meant it was a strange thing for the celebrity chef to hear it had been cancelled.Speaking about when she heard the news, Lisa reflected: “Yeah, it was really sad. “I think it’s such a great show and, for me and my two best friends…“You know, I met Angela (Griffin) and Nicola (Stephenson) on that show and we have been best friends ever since. “So to me, it’s been a really important show in my life,” she added.Apart from her job as a TV chef, Lisa is also known for her previous roles on soaps such as Brookside, where she played Louise Hope, and EastEnders, where she played Fi Browning.However, she’s also enjoyed some more recent roles, such as Murdoch Mysteries and BBC One’s The Girl Before.Speaking about her future in the world of television, Lisa explained: “You know, it’s really nice to be going up for auditions again, playing small parts in nice dramas. “It’s just been fun doing the auditioning again and getting the jobs.

'God he's arrogant!' John Torode's wife Lisa gets candid about their awkward first meeting
MasterChef's John Torode, 56, and wife Lisa Faulkner, 49, admit it wasn’t love at first sight when they first met, as the latter thought he was “arrogant”.They were introduced on the set of This Morning in 1996 when Lisa was being interviewed and John was cooking in the kitchen.The actress said she had noticed his “lovely, dark curly hair”, but did not get the reaction she wanted when she went over to chat to him.The Holby City star explained to The Sunday Times: “I went over to see what he was cooking and said, ‘That looks delicious’."He replied, ‘Yup’, very brusquely.“No acknowledgment, he barely looked at me and I just thought, ‘God, he’s really arrogant’.”After the unfortunate meeting, the pair did not cross paths again for another 13 years.They were reunited when Lisa took part in Celebrity MasterChef in 2010, which she won.Lisa thought John was “still good looking”, but “still arrogant" while taking on the “culinary Simon Cowell role”, as his co-star Gregg Wallace was busy "cracking jokes".John, on the other hand, confessed he was “cowardly” at the start of their relationship.He explained that he was anxious to approach Lisa in case she turned him down, and that after separating from his first wife, he couldn't face another heartbreak.The chef explained: “I’d separated from my wife, which was awful, and I was reluctant to approach Lisa face to face as I didn’t fancy the prospect of her saying no.“So, I wrote her a letter. If I’d got no response, it wouldn’t matter.“Cowardly? Sh**, yeah.
