Taking to her Facebook page this week, Ellie, 31, said: "For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Headway - the brain injury association.

"I've chosen this charity because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope that you'll consider contributing as a way of celebrating with me.

"Every little bit will help me reach my goal. I've included information about Headway - the brain injury association below.

She added: "Headway's mission is to promote the understanding of all aspects of brain injury and to provide vital information, support and services to people with a brain injury, their families and carers."

Headway's own page reads: “Headway's mission is to promote the understanding of all aspects of brain injury and to provide vital information, support and services to people with a brain injury, their families and carers.”

The fundraiser was set up on April 12 and, according to The Mirror, Ellie had a target of £150 but has already raised £1,315.

Ellie made her debut on Gogglebox back in 2015 during season six, alongside her sister Izzi.

They are one of the longest-serving families on the show.

She also appeared with Nat during the pandemic when different households weren’t allowed to meet.
