The former Emmerdale actress hasn't had it easy in recent years after the death of her beloved mum last year, but Lisa has plenty to look forward to… starting with a new man.
"I'm so scared of talking about him in case I jinx it!" she tells us. "I've never said he's The One, but we're having fun and I want it to work. But I am the dartboard of disaster when it comes to relationships, I really am.
"We're learning about each other at the moment. I am mega-busy but I still manage to sneak in time with him! Now with my autobiography out, I have been more in the public eye and I hope he can cope with my fame. We've actually been seeing each other for a while and managed to keep it private before and it's been going quite nicely.
"Sometimes partners don't like the stuff that goes around fame. I am a complete romantic but I have to be a realist and go into it thinking that it may not be for that long. But I want to enjoy it, and if it goes pear-shaped I'll move on again."
So is she a good girlfriend? "I think I'm brilliant at relationships. I'm not needy at all! I have a massive heart. I want to love and be loved but if they want to go to the football all day Saturday and Sunday, or go for a drink with their mates, that doesn't bother me at all. Then I can do my job and my own thing. I am the stereotypical ideal girlfriend, apart from the fact that I'm fat!"
"I just feel so sexy at the moment and I'd feel that way whatever size I was. I am always getting comments like, 'God, you're gorgeous and you're a sex kitten.' It does a lot for the ego!
"I've had hair extensions and have this big lioness hair now and I love wearing low-cut skintight body con dresses. I have a cracking pair of boobs and I want to show them off! I love my boobs! I am getting attention from men in a way I never did before. And my boyfriend really loves my curves.
"I always had attention, but I can really see a massive difference. Robin [Windor] is always joking, 'Look what I've done to you!'" she laughs.
Lisa's autobiography, Never Judge A Book By Its Cover, is published by Orion.
