Gogglebox’s Ellie and Izzi Warner will be taking a break form the Channel 4 series.
The duo, based in Leeds, have been urged to take time out from Gogglebox after Ellie’s boyfriend Nat Eddleston was hit by a car and immediately rushed to intensive care.
Nat remains in a stable condition but there are reportedly fears the 31-year-old has possibly suffered brain damage.
‘Channel 4 take duty of care really seriously,’ a source told The Sun.
‘Obviously Ellie and Issy are two of the most loved regulars on the show but it wouldn’t be right for them to have to film a light hearted show when Nat is in such a critical condition.
‘Producers have made it clear there is no pressure to return to filming and they can take all the time they need.’
A family member confirmed Nat suffered a broken neck back and two collapsed lungs.

West Yorkshire Police confirmed in a statement: ‘The pedestrian remains in a critical but stable condition in hospital and inquiries into the incident are ongoing.’
Reports say that Nat was enjoying a night out at the pub with friends prior to the crash.
He is said to have been hit by a white Seat Leon traveling out of the city just after midnight.
Hairdresser Ellie is yet to make a public comment on what happened, but police are continuing to appeal for witnesses.
Ellie has appeared on Gogglebox alongside sister Izzi, 27, since 2015.
Nat actually filled in for Izzi when she was unable to film.
Gogglebox continues Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
