THE Girl Before actress Lisa Faulkner celebrated the New Year with her husband John Torode and their famous friends.

The 49-year-old – who has starred in the likes of Holby City, Casualty andBrookside – took to Instagram to share what she's been up to over the festive period.

In one snap Lisa looked incredible in a sparkly dress with her famous friends Angela Griffin and Nicola Stephenson.

Another showed the star with a big smile on her face as she embraced the outdoors with pal Owain Arthur, 38.

Her celebrity chef husband John also made an appearance in the post in an adorable pic with their pooch.

Lisa also shared another of the married couple relaxing at home on the sofa.

The actress captioned the post: "A little late but happy 2022!! What a beautiful few days away , with my best friends who are also my family.

"Even though my poor @johntorodecooks was really not well we had a lovely time. Eating , laughing , walking , and just generally living in our commune of happiness.

"Feel very thankful to have walked into the new year with my friend and family by my side. I hope you all had a lovely one. I hope you are all ok and that 2022 brings you joy ❤️♥️🥰 ."

It comes after fans were left over the moon when they spotted Lisa in the third episode of BBC's new drama The Girl Before.

Lisa played a support worker from a stillborn charity called Tessa who was trying to help Jane Cavendish get over the loss of her unborn baby.

While viewers were left heartbroken for Jane, others pointed out that they recognised the actress who played Tessa.

One wrote on Twitter: "Wasn't expecting @lisafaulkner1 in #TheGirlBefore. What a great surprise."
