It has been reported that Nat is on a life support machine and has sustained a broken back, two collapsed lungs and possible brain damage. Although the TV star, who regularly appears alongside her sister Izzi, has been inundated with support from Channel 4 producers and her social media followers, she has yet to address the accident publicly.

How did Ellie Warner meet her boyfriend Nat?
The hairdresser has been a regular on Gogglebox since 2015, but she did not go public with Nat on social media until January 2020. The couple's first photos together show them exploring scenic trees, rivers and bridges with Ellie wrapped up warm in a khaki jacket with a fluffy hood and Nat sporting a red jacket, jeans and green waterproof boots.

She teased that she was in a relationship two years before that, although it is not known if that was with Nat.
"We've both got boyfriends," Ellie and Izzi told The Sun Online at the National Television Awards, adding: "They're in hiding, they let us have the limelight."

Does Ellie Warner live with her boyfriend?
Ellie and Nat moved into their first home together in 2021. They purchased a modest 1930s semi-detached house in Leeds which they planned to decorate with a "pop of colour" and "second-hand finds".

The 31-year-old TV star even set up a new Instagram account for the house, aptly called Through my Keyhole, and wrote: "Soon to be our home. Thank you to everyone who's followed so far!! We're looking at exchanging end of May/June time all being well.
"We're so lucky the current owners have kept it in immaculate condition so we can move straight in and just do things as we go along!"
She added: "I'm so excited that I've more or less kitted the living room out already as that's gonna be the first room on the list.
"Nat has banned me from looking on Facebook marketplace but can't wait to get in and start making this house our home." [sic]
