Lisa kept her dad’s illness hidden during her public divorce battle with ex-husband Ant McPartlin, and was last seen with Derek on a beach during a break in Los Angeles in July 2018.
It comes at the end of a tormenting two years where Lisa finalised an arrangement with her former partner.
Ant, 44, settled the divorce in January, having split from Lisa in 2018.

He reportedly handed their £5 million home in West London over in the settlement, after an ‘eight-hour negotiation’. The former-couple also now share custody of their pet Labrador, Hurley.
Ant is said to have offered up more than half of his estimated £50m fortune, but was ‘delighted’ that the case has come to an end as he can ‘move on’, two years after announcing their split.
However, as the news broke, Lisa took to Twitter to deny the reports, posting: ‘Nope a load of nonsense AGAIN….’

She went to ‘like’ tweets that stated, ‘No amount of money could ever compensate or what this poor girl has had to endure’, and ‘Get what you can! You deserve it!’
Another read: ‘Terrible treatment of you since you found out when we did! And with a so called friend! It’s heartbreaking behaviour.
‘I bet the money means nothing in some respects, it certainly can’t buy the respect she deserves or make up for the sh***y spineless way he scurried off & tried to silence her.

Meanwhile, it’s been reported that Lisa wants to sell the house she has won in the divorce.
And according to a source, she is looking to shack up with a pair of girlfriends so she can ‘enjoy the single life’.
She is allegedly selling both the house in Chiswick and a further property previously owned by the pair, so she can close her door firmly on the past.
‘She and Ant lived in the house for years. It holds a lot of bad memories and now the divorce is being finalised she wants to start again somewhere new.
Abuse? The Sun reports that Lisa sent the message to Anne-Marie, who used to be Ant’s PA, in the middle of the night, leaving her ‘shaken’ [the pair are pictured last summer]
