A spokeswoman for the star said: "Lisa was taken to hospital on Friday and has been diagnosed with viral meningitis. She is now on the mend but is unlikely to return to the Breakfast Show next week."

Lisa, who got to the final of BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing in 2008, has dated Hollywood heart-throb George Clooney.
