Is John and Lisa's weekend kitchen filmed in their home?

Although these measures make sense in the current crisis, they might still surprise some viewers. In fact, many people remain convinced that filming for the show actually takes place in John and Lisa's house.

However, despite the homey aesthetic of the set, the series has actually always been studio-based. Lisa Faulkner confirmed this news over the summer on Instagram, as she explained to her followers why things looked different.

In a candid exchange, one part of the John and Lisa double act declared:

"...it was in a studio and not in our house, that's why it looks different. So we take all our things so that it looks like home and then we feel like it's like home. But I love you all and thank you for your lovely messages."

Clearly, you can't trust everything you see on TV.
