Ellie Warner's Gogglebox return brings babies and wedding talk with boyfriend Nat

By George Thorpe

Babies and wedding plans were on the cards as Gogglebox star Ellie Warner returned to the Channel 4 show alongside her sister Izzi.

Ellie, 31, has been absent from the award-winning show since March after her boyfriend Nat Eddleston suffered from life-threatening injuries during an accident. But Ellie broke her social media silence just hours before the episode aired, and confirmed her return after two months away.

The hilarious sister duo, both from Leeds, made jokes about Ellie's boyfriend and his desire for a 'shotgun wedding' before speaking to him on the phone to find out if he knew what it meant, reports the Mirror. Nat, who was put on loud speaker, was the butt of the joke as he was seemingly unaware that a shotgun wedding means the bride is pregnant.

Ellie recalled to sister Izzi: "I said to Nat this morning, when we get married what type of wedding do you want? And he went: 'A shotgun wedding!"

"So I said 'ooo does that mean you want me to be pregnant before we get married?' and he said 'no'. I actually want to know what he thought a shotgun wedding was.

Nat admitted he thought the term meant the groom was "forced to get married". Perhaps unsurprisingly, the two sisters laughed at his revelation.

Nat appeared alongside Ellie on the Channel 4 show in 2020 (Channel 4)

Ellie's TV return comes after Nat was reportedly knocked down by a white car in March, after meeting friends for drinks at a pub in the Halton area of the city. West Yorkshire Police confirmed a 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. Earlier this year, an insider told the Daily Star that Ellie "has been told to take all the time she needs - everyone on the show is hoping and praying Nat will be ok".

But, in a recent post to her 443k followers on Instagram, Ellie revealed she would be appearing on the latest Gogglebox episode of the award-winning show which aired last night (May 13). She captioned the image: "Looking forward to getting back on your screens tonight!

"Thank you for all the well wishes, we are really grateful that things are getting back to normal."

Gogglebox airs on Friday nights on Channel 4 at 9pm .
