Fans of Gogglebox have expressed their sadness after Izzi Warner was replaced on the show.

Izzi is usually seen chatting about the week’s TV with her sister Ellie during the Channel 4 reality series.

But on Friday night (April 3, 2020), Ellie’s boyfriend Nat was sitting on the couch in place of the bubbly star.

Along Gogglebox bosses did not reference Izzi’s absence, it is believed the coronavirus lockdown is to blame.

The sisters don’t live together, so the current Government restrictions mean they can’t film Gogglebox together.

Baby joy

In February, Izzi and her partner – whose name she keeps private – welcomed her second child into the world.

At the time, Izzi announced: “So pleased to announce the safe arrival of our darling baby girl Bessie Rose born on 3rd February 2020 1:44pm, weighing 7lb 3oz.

“We are all totally smitten by her, feeling so blessed and happy, thanks to everyone for all your well wishes.”

However, along with the majority of the nation, Izzi and her little family had gone into lockdown by Mother’s Day (March 22).


Sharing a picture of herself with Bessie and son Bobby, four, she said: “Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

“This isn’t what we had planned for today but there’s no place I’d rather be… and I’m not moving all day.

“Thinking of everyone who isn’t seeing their mum today for whatever reason sending you lots of love.

“Hopefully next Mother’s Day we will be back out celebrating together #mothersday #breakfastinbed #movieday.”
