Ten years from now... We would like to be happy, healthy and contented!

When Lisa and Johnny first holidayed in Dubai back in 2000, it was the beginning of a love affair with the emirate. The pair bought a property on The Palm, Jumeirah a year later and, following the success of their individual careers – Lisa as a member of UK pop group Steps and Johnny’s recording career with pop group Hear’Say – they set up home in Dubai full-time two years ago.

Last year, Lisa revisited Steps’ previous success on a sell-out arena tour of the UK after the band’s greatest hits album, Ultimate Collection, reached number one. Despite the widespread fame she’s achieved, however, Lisa reveals she’s happiest in her role as a mother to their two children, son Jaden, five, and four-year-old daughter Star Lily. Johnny, in the meantime, is now working as a property consultant. But the pair plan to return to their showbiz roots – they’re in the process of combining their talents and experience in the entertainment industry to open their own performing arts academy some time in the near future.
