Googlebox star Ellie Warner has confirmed when she will be returning to the Channel 4 show, following her boyfriend’s tragic accident.
The Yorkshire lass has been absent from our screens since March, following an accident which saw boyfriend Nat Eddleston rushed to hospital and fighting for his life.
Taking to social media today, the Googlebox favorite revealed she would be appearing on tonight’s episode of the award-winning show.
“Looking forward to getting back on your screens tonight!” Ellie told her fans on Instagram.
“Thank you for all the well wishes, we are really grateful that things are getting back to normal.”
Gogglebox co-star Sophie Sandiford was one of the many to comment underneath Ellie’s update, writing: “Great to see you both back!! Xxxxx”
Dave and Shirl also added a sweet message to their Googlebox colleague, commenting: “Great to have you back xxxx”
Within minutes of sharing her first Instagram update in weeks, Ellie was inundated with supportive messages from Googlebox fans who have missed seeing her on the Channel 4 show.
“Brilliant news, hope for a speedy recovery,” one follower told the popular star, with another adding: “Brilliant news, hope for a speedy recovery.”
Ellie – who appears on the Channel 4 show alongside sister Izzi – has been absent from the show, and social media, since her boyfriend’s tragic accident earlier this year.
Nat was reportedly knocked down by a white car shortly after midnight on a Friday night in March, after meeting friends for drinks at a pub in the Halton area of the city.
It is believed that he was struck by a white Seat Leon just after midnight.
West Yorkshire Police confirmed the road in Halton, Leeds, was cordoned off the following morning.
It had been previously been reported that Ellie would not be making a return to Gogglebox anytime soon, as she stayed by the bedside of her partner.
“Ellie has been told to take all the time she needs – everyone on the show is hoping and praying Nat will be ok,” an insider told the Daily Star in March, when it was claimed Ellie would be missing the rest of the current series .
The Leeds-based star has appeared on the award-winning production alongside her sister Izzi since they joined the Gogglebox family in 2015.
The popular sisters have been fan favorites with Channel 4 viewers since they first appeared on Googlebox – winning viewers over with their close bond and witty remarks.
Many of their early Gogglebox scenes were filmed at their Yorkshire family home, where eldest sister Ellie still lived at the time.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Izzi took a brief break from the show in 2020, with Ellie’s boyfriend Nat stepping in to cover the star.
Ellie will make her return to Gogglebox tonight on Channel 4 at 9pm.
