Lisa Snowdon returned to social media after a two-week absence to update fans on her health.

Although she shared an advert two days ago, the 52-year-old model and presenter last properly posted on 8 February as she shared a video of her ‘outfit of the day’. On her Instagram Stories, she explained her two-week absence with aesthetic edited photo of a lone tree in the distance.

The Celebrity MasterChef star wrote: “I wanted to say thank you for your love & concern. I have been off social media for 2 weeks and have been poorly. I’ve taken this time to rest and sleep as much as possible, I’ll be back on track soon. In the meantime I adore you. Thanks again.”

Last year, Lisa opened up about feeling “lonely” while experiencing a series of different “painful” perimenopause symptoms. While appearing on Loose Women, she said there were a lot of positive changes in the last few years about perimenopause awareness but there was still a lot more to understand.

She said: “There’s so much more out there now and you can make a decision and can understand what’s happening. Whereas 10 years ago, I didn’t know and I think when you’re alone and you’re doing it on your own and you don’t have that information, that’s when it’s a scary, lonely place to be. Knowing what we know now, we can work through it, we can navigate it, we can get the help we need – so don’t be scared, just be prepared.”

Opening up on her own experience, she said: “It was painful. It was really hard to work out what’s happening to me and if any of you have gone through perimenopause it’s a bit of a shapeshifter. One year and you’ll feel like this and you’re be anxious, depressed, low, over-emotional, then your periods, your cycles will completely change.

“And then I put on three stone and that’s hard when you’re in any work situation, but when [especially] you’re doing TV. Then you can get brain fog and all that sort of stuff. There’s about 60 symptoms and counting, there’s loads of lesser known symptoms, like dry eye disease, vertigo and tinnitus and all these kinds of things, but I just navigated it by myself.”

Lisa continued: “That’s why I’ve been really open and passionate about talking about it. And, also I just want women to fast track their diagnosis, fast track their health and not spend as much money as I did.”
