Ellie and Nat have been together for several years and recently purchased their first home together. The family member, who did not want to be identified, said Nat was hit by a car after a night out in Leeds.
“Nat is in intensive care with a broken neck, broken back, two collapsed lungs and possible brain damage,” they said. “He is on life support and the whole family and Ellie are obviously very worried about him.”
The Sun reports that Ellie “fears” Nat suffered brain damage from Friday night’s accident. Nat, who is in his thirties, is said to have been with friends at a pub in Halton.
West Yorkshire Police today (Saturday) appealed for witnesses after a man was hit by a car near the Woodman Pub in Halton shortly after midnight. The road was cordoned off by officers this morning. It has not been confirmed whether this is linked to the accident which injured Mr Eddleston.
Nat was reportedly hit by a white Seat Leon driving out of town just after midnight.
Ellie, a hairstylist, has appeared on Gogglebox alongside her sister, Izzi, since 2015. She also appears with the couple’s dogs, Mick and Madge.
