Gogglebox sister Ellie Warner’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston is fighting for his life in intensive care following an horrific hit and run.

His extensive injuries include a broken neck, broken back, two collapsed lungs, aside the possible brain damage.

A family friend told The Sun: “He is on a life support machine and all the family and Ellie are obviously very worried for him.”

Nat had been out in Halton, drinking with friends in a pub.

He was reportedly struck by a white Seat Leon just after midnight.

The car allegedly travelled for a further 100 yards before stopping – it had a smashed windscreen from the collision.

Police have asked witnesses to the incident to get in touch.

Nat recently moved in with Ellie, 31.

Together they run an Instagram account, Through My Keyhole, which details the renovations they are making on their 1930s semi in Leeds.
