Gogglebox fans were sending their prayers and thoughts to show favourite Ellie Warner as she was absent from the latest episode.
Ellie and sister Izzi Warner have currently bowed out of the Channel 4 show after the former’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston was hit by a car in a devastating crash.
The incident took place near a pub in West Yorkshire just after midnight on Saturday, 19 March.
Nat is said to be suffering from injuries including a broken neck, broken back, and two collapsed lungs. He was also put into intensive care, with Ellie and the rest of the family staying by his side in hospital.

Ellie’s 30-something boyfriend had been enjoying a night out with friends in his local pub in Halton when he was hit by a white Seat Leon car.
A family member told The Sun at the time: “Nat is in intensive care with a broken neck, broken back, two collapsed lungs and possible brain damage.”
Unfortunately, the Gogglebox star’s boyfriend’s latest condition is not currently know.
Sad and worried for Gogglebox’s popular sister duo as they noticed their disappearance from the show Friday night, fans flocked to Twitter to give their support.
“Thinking of Ellie at this time,” one devastated viewer wrote.
Another fan shared: “My thoughts are with Nat and Ellie.”
“Missing Ellie and Izzie tonight. Sending love to them all and get well wishes to Ellie’s boyfriend Nat,” a third person posted.

While a fourth fan said: “I really hope Ellie and her partner Nat are doing ok following his accident.”
Ellie has been reportedly told to take “all the time she needs” away from Gogglebox by bosses of the entertainment programme, according to a source at the publication.
While the show is hoping Nat will fully recover and Ellie and Izzi will be able to return, fears remain that the star’s boyfriend could suffer brain damage from the crash.
Gogglebox continues Fridays at 9pm on Channel 4.
