Gogglebox star Ellie Warner was seen joined by friends at a local Wetherspoons as she took a break from boyfriend Nat’s side as he continues to recover in hospital after being struck by a car
Gogglebox star Ellie Warner has been seen for the first time since boyfriend Nat was hit by a car during a night out in Leeds.
The devoted Ellie took a break from her hospital bedside vigil to go out with friends over the bank holiday weekend.
A pink-haired Ellie, 31, looked dejected as she was seen leaving The Three Hulats by Weatherspoons in Leeds.
Received in pictures from The sunThe Channel 4 star was spotted in ripped jeans and a green military jacket as she smoked a cigarette outside.
Ellie has not been seen in weeks after stepping down from her Gogglebox role as she continues to support Nat.
The hairstylist usually appears on the show with her sister, Izzi, but was put on leave from filming to be with her boyfriend.
It was reported this week that Ellie will be paid in full on the show while she takes an extended break while producers gather around the Warner family.
A TV insider said bosses have told Ellie to take whatever time she needs while keeping her £15,000 monthly payment.
A source told The Sun: “The bosses paid Ellie her full fee for the show – they didn’t want her or Izzi to worry about money.
“Of course they honored the payments — they take duty of care on the show very seriously.”
Nat was hospitalized on March 18 after suffering a broken neck and a punctured lung in a car accident.
West Yorkshire Police said there was no news on the case.
