Twins Lisa and Alana Macfarlane have supported the British Heart Foundation for many years now, ever since the tragic death of their father, Kenny, who died from a heart attack playing golf aged 58.
The sisters are totally committed to supporting the BHF’s life-saving research, and have done everything from running the London Marathon to red-carpet fundraising events. And, as ex-Love Island DJs, they even DJ’d for the charity’s Heart Hero Awards in 2019 and presented an award.

The Mac Twins want everyone to see how easy it is to cook heart healthy, delicious meals. Keep reading to find out how you can watch them make a BHF-approved Mindful Chef recipe on Wednesday 30th June (see below for details). As gut health advocates, here are some of their brilliant tips.
Top heart health tip
“Eat a Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruit and vegetables, as well as oily fish and wholegrain cereals.”
Lovely Gut health tip
“Fibre is the unsung hero of gut health, it’s the bassist in the band nobody knows the name of but it’s super important – it’s also something that isn’t completely alien to all of us, we just need more of it! It has so many benefits beyond helping you “go” and even feeds the microbes in our guts!”
“We say empower yourself with the knowledge first, so you can make the best decisions for yourself, if we can’t be sold the same diet as identical twins, no-one can! We gathered loads of experts in so many fields – from skin to immunity – in our book, so you can read all the science, nice and bite-sized.”
