Girlfriend Ellie, 31, understandably hasn’t appeared on Gogglebox since Nat was rushed to hospital and is set to miss the rest of the season.
The Yorkshire-born star has appeared on the award-winning production alongside her sister Izzi since they joined the Channel 4 show in 2015.
“Ellie has been told to take all the time she needs – everyone on the show is hoping and praying Nat will be ok,” an insider told the Daily Star last month.
It has also been reported that Gogglebox have paid Ellie her £ 1,500 show fee in full to put her mind at rest about money, amid the ongoing circumstances.
Nat was reportedly knocked down by a white car shortly after midnight on March 18, after meeting friends for drinks at a pub in the Halton area of the city.
West Yorkshire Police confirmed the road in Halton, Leeds, was cordoned off on Saturday morning.
Ellie is still to comment on Nat and his recovery – but has reportedly “barely left” his side since he was hospitalized.
It was previously reported that the hairdresser is “fearful” that her boyfriend – who once appeared on the Channel 4 show with her – may have suffered brain damage following the accident.
Ellie and sister Izzi have become fan favorites with Channel 4 viewers over the years, thanks to their hilarious TV commentary and on-screen dynamic.
Many of their early Gogglebox scenes were filmed at their Yorkshire family home, where eldest sister Ellie still lived at the time.
When the coronavirus pandemic refuge and the first lockdown was implemented in early 2020, Izzi took a brief break from the show, with Ellie’s boyfriend Nat stepping in to cover the star.
Just weeks before the horrifying accident, Ellie declared her love for her partner in a gushing Valentine’s Day tribute on Instagram.
Sharing a picture of Nat holding up a piece of kebab meat, Ellie cheekily wrote: “Happy Valentine’s Day to my one true loves [heart and laughing emoji]. “
