Gogglebox star Ellie Warner has celebrated salons reopening as lockdown restrictions ease across England, revealing that she’s headed back to work.
Throughout the seemingly endless lockdowns of the coronavirus pandemic, Channel 4’s Gogglebox has been one of the programmes that has brought some much-needed levity into people’s homes.
Leeds-based Ellie and her sister Izzi Warner have continued to entertain viewers with their wisecracks and banter, having first joined the show in 2015.
And now that hair and nail salons are reopening, having been allowed to do so since Monday April 12, Ellie is returning to her day job as a hairdresser.
In an Instagram post, Ellie, 30, shared a picture of her reflection in a mirror at her salon, kitted out with a visor and a mask.
Posing with a peace sign for the camera, she wrote in the caption: ‘Back to work. good luck to all my fellow hairdressers and everyone who’s back at it today.’
Several of 286k Instagram followers wished her luck on her return to work.
‘Take care and stay safe,’ one person commented, while another said: ‘Good luck Ellie, have the best day!’
Ellie kept it casual with her first day back outfit, wearing a pair of black jeans with a floral top as she prepared to welcome back her clients.
Ahead of the launch of the new series of Gogglebox, Ellie gave her fans serious hair envy when she shared a video in which her blonde tresses were transformed into fun pink locks.
‘I feel like me again,’ she wrote in the caption for the post shared in February this year.
During last week’s episode of Gogglebox, Pete Sandiford made viewers emotional when he revealed that he and his fiancée Paige Yeomans are expecting a baby together.
‘Innit mad? I am actually going to be a dad to somebody,’ he said after showing a scan of the baby to his sister Sophie Sandiford.
‘Crazy. Life’s coming at you fast,’ she replied.
Gogglebox airs on Friday at 9pm on Channel 4.
