We're so glad that they're back

Ellie also shared an update on Nat’s condition while on the show, after giving him a call to joke with him over what he thought a 'shotgun wedding' meant. Putting him on speaker, Nat sounded happy and in good spirits, and viewers were touched by the couple's exchange, with one viewer writing on Twitter: "I've never met Nat, nor am I likely to but I'm so so happy to have heard him talking to Ellie on the phone. Well done Nat, so glad you're getting better."

Another said: "So lovely to see Ellie & Izzy back & to hear Nat sounding so well," a third added: "Pretty sure hearing Nat on the phone with Ellie is gonna be the best bit of #Gogglebox tonight. Great to know he's recovering."
