A first look at the scene of a serious crash which saw Gogglebox star Ellie Warner’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston ‘fighting for his life’ has been revealed.
Hairdresser Ellie, who appears on the Channel 4 show with her sister Izzi, is reportedly living ‘hour by hour’ after he was hit by a car in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Ellie, 31, is said to be ‘fearful’ Nat could be left brain damaged by the incident.
Reports emerged over the weekend that Nat was on life support after suffering collapsed lungs and a broken neck.

A photograph from the weekend shows West Yorkshire Police rallied around Nat at the scene of the serious collision.
He was attended to by paramedics as he lays on the floor following the crash.
Another photo taken in daylight shows the police had cordoned off the road to investigate what happened over the weekend.
The incident is understood to have taken place in the Halton area of Leeds involving a white Seat Leon, with police appealing for witnesses.

It’s understood Nat was drinking in his local pub before the collision, which happened shortly after midnight.
The car’s windscreen is said to have been smashed in the incident and the roof was dented, with the vehicle allegedly continuing on for 100 yards before stopping.
Ellie has reportedly stayed by Nat’s side throughout the whole thing, as fans of the show have shared their support.
A source told The Sun: “Nat is Ellie’s absolute world. She has been totally overwhelmed with messages of love and support.
“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.”
Another source said Nat is on a life support machine and the family are “obviously very worried for him”.
Ellie has been dating Nat for two years, but tends to keep her relationship out of the spotlight.
The couple recently moved into their first home together – a 1930s semi-detached house in Leeds.
She wrote on Instagram at the time: “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!
“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.”
