They didn't mention whether they will be making their return to the show before the current series wraps up.

Elsewhere on the show, Ellie Warner and her sister Izzi returned after taking some time off following Ellie's boyfriend Nat Eddleston's tragic accident in March.

The TV star has been missing from the show for the last few weeks to care for Nat, who was rushed to hospital after being hit by a car during a night out in Leeds. Nat was placed on a life support machine and sustained several severe injuries, including a broken back, a broken neck, and two collapsed lungs.

However, on Friday, Ellie looked like her normal self again as she settled on the sofa with her sister Izzi – and Nat even made a brief cameo, with Ellie calling him on the phone at the start of the episode.
