John Torode and Lisa Faulkner are set to return to ITV.

The TV chef and his actress fiancée have been commissioned by the popular network to return with their weekend cooking show.

Back in March, the pair, who announced their engagement in January, took to Instagram to tease that they had some exciting news to share with their followers.

Of course, fans thought that the foodie couple might have a bun in the oven, but they were quick to shut down those theories, confirming instead that they were taking to ITV with their very own weekend cooking show.

John and Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen saw the pair sharing their cooking ideas and advice for an hour every Sunday morning.

And it has now been picked up for a second series.

The new series will see the TV chefs spending Sunday mornings in a cosy kitchen just like their own and will give viewers guidance on cooking breakfast, Sunday lunch, dinners, snacks and even cocktails.
