She added: ‘Sometimes I think it will be written on my tombstone — “George Clooney once dated Lisa Snowdon.”‘

But she stayed tight-lipped on the saucier details that fans wanted to know, saying: ‘I never tell’, in response to questions about George’s sexual prowess.

Lisa admitted that while she has lost touch with George over the years, but remains friends with his Ocean’s Eleven co-star Matt Damon.

Speaking on I’m A Celebrity in 2016, Lisa said of the actor: ‘He came to my birthday party. He’s really nice.’

The comments on her former flame come after Lisa bravely opened up about the menopause, admitting it was a time she felt ‘completely alone and lost.’

It was her early forties when she started to experience an ‘out of control’ feeling, which she now recognises as the beginning of her perimenopause – the transitional period before menopause.

Since being put on the right HRT after meeting Dr Naomi Potter last year, Lisa said she has ‘got her brain back’ after years of feeling ‘awful and angry.’

Speaking to OK! magazine, the fashion model said of her changes during the menopause: ‘I felt completely alone and lost. It was feeling awful and angry and sleep deprived, with skin, hair and body changes. I ended up putting on quite a bit of weight.’

While Lisa, who has modeled for a slew of beauty adverts and high-fashion covers such as Elle, often manifests a ‘pretty positive body image’, her weight gain did impact her confidence.

She explained: ‘I was a little bit broken when nothing in my wardrobe fitted me. I remember sitting on the floor and just crying.’

HRT has been ‘amazing’, the former Capital Breakfast host admitted, but she recalled how she came to the realisation she had to keep an eye on the food and drink she was consuming, as well as upping her exercise.

Her fitness regime is mostly centered on strength training, with Lisa feeling ‘more positive’ from her regular serotonin boosts.

The long-time TV star was not alone as she battled her ‘perimenopause madness’, as she rekindled her relationship with now fiancé George Smart, whom she branded a ‘saint.’

‘I know that the menopause can cause relationships to break down but I’m lucky that George came into my life at that time. For me, it was a godsend. For him, it was challenging. We laugh about it now,’ she said.

The first pair crossed paths two decades ago, when Lisa’s career was planted at MTV.

After getting back together via a close friend of Lisa’s, the ‘familiarity’ was instantaneous.

George cemented his love for a self-proclaimed, ‘genuinely happy’, Lisa in 2016 by getting down on one knee.

MENOPAUSE EXPLAINED

The menopause occurs when a woman stops having periods and can no longer fall pregnant naturally.

It is a natural part of ageing, which occurs in women between 45 and 55 years old.

However 1 in 100 women can experience menopause before the age of 40, which is known as premature menopause or premature ovarian insufficiency.

Symptoms often include hot flushes, night sweats, low mood, reduced sex drive, vaginal dryness, an increase in facial hair and difficulty sleeping.

According to NHS advice, symptoms can begin months or even years before your periods stop and last around four years after your last period.

Premature or early menopause can occur at any age, and in many cases, there’s no clear cause.
