According to MailOnline, Ellie, who has appeared alongside her younger sister Izzi on the programme since 2015, is unlikely to resume filming for the programme any time soon. A close friend told the publication that although Ellie is yet to speak of the news publicly, she has not left her partner’s side since.
The accident occurred in the early hours of Saturday 19 March and saw Nat involved in a tragic accident involving a car. 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.
