Ellie Warner returned to Gogglebox alongside her sister Izzy after her boyfriend Nat was seriously injured in a car accident.
In March, Nat was rushed to intensive care after being hit by a car in Halton, Leeds, as he was returning home from a night out.
Ellie hadn’t appeared on the Channel 4 show’s current series since, with producers apparently telling her to take the time she needed.
On Friday’s episode of Gogglebox, Ellie made her first appearance on the show since the accident and was also seen on the phone with Nat as they jokingly discussed weddings.
Referring to an earlier conversation they had, Ellie asked him what he thought a “forced marriage” meant.
“You have to get married,” he replied, causing a lot of laughter from Ellie and Izzy.
When they clarified that it was actually a wedding that took place when the bride was pregnant, Ellie asked if that was what Nat had planned for them, to which he insisted, “No. ! »
Following the March 18 incident, Nat was reportedly initially placed on a life support machine with a family member revealing he suffered a broken neck and back as well as two collapsed lungs.
In a short statement at the time, West Yorkshire Police confirmed: “The pedestrian remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital and investigations into the incident are ongoing.”
Ahead of Friday’s episode of Gogglebox, Ellie shared a photo of herself and Izzy on Instagram thanking fans for their messages.
“Can’t wait to get back to your screens tonight! Thank you for all the well wishes, we are really grateful that things are back to normal.
