Gogglebox star Ellie Warner had a big question for boyfriend Nat as she returned to the show tonight. Ellie and sister Izzi were missing from recent episodes of the new series after Ellie’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston was involved in a serious incident.
He was admitted to intensive care in March after being hit by a car in Leeds during a night out. But he appears to be on the mend as viewers got to hear from him during tonight’s episode. Calling her boyfriend on loudspeaker, Ellie asked him a big question about a ‘shotgun wedding.’
Ellie asked: “You know when you said about a shotgun wedding this morning… what did you think a shotgun wedding meant?” To which Nat replied: “You’re forced to get married.” Ellie continued: “But do you know why you’re forced to get married?” Izzi, on the sofa next to Ellie, burst into laughter, and said: “The bride has a shotgun.” Nat then said: “Because you got someone pregnant.”

Ellie then remarked: “Oh so you did know that… so does that mean you’re going to get me pregnant?” Nat simply responded: “No,” before Ellie then signed off saying: “Right, goodbye”. Fans of the pair rushed to social media to share their excitement about the return of the much-loved sisters, with many sharing well-wishes regarding Nat’s recovery.
