Gogglebox star Ellie Warner “may not be returning to the show anytime soon,” sources say, as she remains at her boyfriend Nat Eddleston’s hospital bed after he was hit by a car.
The plumber is said to have suffered a broken neck, a broken back and two collapsed lungs after the accident while Nat was out and about in Leeds in March.
Ellie and her sister Izzi have not appeared on the show since the accident, and a friend of the hairdresser says her main focus is making sure she’s there for her boyfriend and that “nothing else matters”.
said The sun : “Channel 4 takes due diligence very seriously.
“Obviously Ellie and Izzi are two of the show’s most popular regulars, but it wouldn’t be right if they had to film a light-hearted show when Nat is in such a critical condition.
“The producers have made it clear that there is no pressure to return to filming and that they can take whatever time they need.”
Mirror Online have reached out to Ellie’s representatives and Channel 4 for comment.
Nat was hospitalized on March 18 after being hit by a car in the Halton area of Leeds while driving home after a night of drinking.
“The pedestrian remains in critical but stable condition in hospital and the investigation into the incident is ongoing,” the police said in a statement.
Following last month’s accident, West Yorkshire Police were appealing for witnesses as they investigated the “serious road accident”.
“Police are appealing for witnesses following a serious road accident in the Halton area of Leeds involving a white Seat Leon and an adult male pedestrian,” the statement said on social media.
“Officers would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision, which occurred at around 00:10 this morning (Saturday 19 March 2022) on Selby Road near The Woodman pub,” they added .
Gogglebox fans gave their support to Ellie during Friday’s episode as the star was absent from the Channel 4 show.
One wrote: “I really hope Ellie’s boyfriend is okay.”
Another asked, “Anyone know how Ellie Warner’s boyfriend Nat is doing after his car crash?”
Another added: “Missing Ellie and Izzie tonight. Sending love to them all and wishing Ellie’s boyfriend Nat all the best.”
Leeds-based star Ellie has appeared in the award-winning production alongside her sister Izzi since joining in 2015.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Izzi took a brief hiatus from the show in 2020, and Ellie’s friend Nat stepped in to cover the star.
