Gogglebox's Ellie Warner will miss THIRD show as boyfriend Nat lies in hospital & police hunt hit and run driver
GOGGLEBOX'S Ellie Warner will miss her THIRD show as her boyfriend Nat lies in hospital and the police continue to hunt for his hit and run driver.
The Leeds lass hasn't been seen on the Channel 4 reality show in three weeks since the devastating accident.
Nat was left fighting for life after he was injured in a hit and run three weeks ago.
The Sun understands that Ellie, 31, sadly won't be on our screens again tonight.
The hairdresser, who has appeared on the programme alongside her sister Izzi for the past six years, hasn't filmed this week because she's been by Nat's bedside.
West Yorkshire Police have said that there are no updates on the case.

It comes after it was revealed that Ellie was taking an extended break from Gogglebox so she was able to look Nat.
A source said: "Channel 4 take duty of care really seriously.
"Obviously Ellie and Izzi are two of the most loved regulars on the show but it wouldn't be right for them to have to film a light hearted show when Nat is in such a critical condition.
"Producers have made it clear there is no pressure to return to filming and they can take all the time they need."

In a short statement, West Yorkshire Police confirmed: "The pedestrian remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital and enquiries into the incident are ongoing".
Speaking shortly after the incident, a source told The Sun: "Ellie is understandably in pieces and everyone is just hoping and praying Nat comes through this.
"Nat is Ellie's absolute world. She has been totally overwhelmed with messages of love and support."
They continued: "She has barely left the hospital since this happened and Nat is getting brilliant care and treatment.
"At the moment they are living hour by hour and just praying that things get better."
