Ellie Warner’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston made a cameo on Gogglebox in 2020 when he stood in for Sister Izzi at the height of the pandemic.
The plumber, 31, is said to be “fighting for his life” after he was reportedly hit by a car after meeting friends for drinks at a Leeds pub last Friday night.
Nat temporarily filled in for Izzi in 2020 as lockdown rules prevented households from mixing and show bosses were able to film the show by keeping the cast and crew separate.
Viewers quickly warmed to him — so much so that some viewers took to Twitter and begged bosses to make him a regular.
One fan wrote at the time: “I know it’s not the biggest problem in the world but I missed Nat and his excellent range of colorful socks on this week’s Gogglebox. And since Izzi lives in a different house to Ellie and Nat, she certainly should.” Didn’t you rejoin the Ellie/Nat household during lockdown?”
While another viewer added: “Made my day to have @ellieandizzi back together on #Gogglebox but where has poor ole Nat gone… room for two on that sofa! #givethemanaseat”
“Nat and Ellie from Gogglebox are awesome,” chimed a third.
Ellie first mentioned Nat on the show in 2018 when the couple moved in together in March last year after buying a semi-detached house in Leeds.
Shocked Gogglebox fans have flooded the family with messages of support on Twitter after reports emerged that Nat was suffering from a broken neck and two collapsed lungs – while it was also reported that there were fears he had suffered brain damage.
West Yorkshire Police confirmed the road was closed in Halton, Leeds, on Saturday morning when providing an update on his condition.
They said: “The pedestrian remains in critical but stable condition and the investigation is ongoing.”
On Tuesday, Nat is said to have lived hour after hour in the intensive care unit after the traumatic incident.
When the show aired on Friday night, understandably Ellie and her sister Izzi didn’t show up at all after the accident, while Ellie is yet to comment on what happened.
Fans of the popular show have been sending prayers to Ellie over the weekend as she waits by her boyfriend’s bedside.
Thousands have left sweet comments for Ellie below the star’s latest snap of her boyfriend holding a piece of doner kebab in a Valentine’s Day tribute.
One person wrote: “Sending you lots of love. I had the same injuries in an accident 30 years ago and although it’s a tough road he’ll make it, I’m just saying that so you know people will get through it. Sending lots of positive vibes for you xx”
A second shared: “Thinking of you all Ellie. Hope Nat recovers quickly. It happened 2 minutes from us.”
Another commented, “Sending positive thoughts.”
