Gogglebox star Ellie Warner has left fans baffled as she gave her boyfriend a subtle engagement hint.

The 31-year-old is known for appearing on the hit Channel 4 alongside younger sister Izzi.

But viewers were briefly introduced to Ellie's other half Nat when coronavirus restrictions prevented the sister from filming together.

The Leeds hairdresser and her boyfriend revealed earlier this year that they were moving in together after buying their first home.

Ellie, however, may be looking to take the next step if her latest Instagram post is anything to go by.

Gazing at a huge blue stone in a shop window, the TV star joked: "Picked the stone for my ring Nat! Better get saving."

Her Gogglebox co-star Pete Sandiford, who got married himself this year, was among the first to comment, writing: "I don't think it's big enough."

But fans were distracted at the optical illusion in the snap that made Ellie appear she was floating - or part of the window display.

"Where have your legs gone," @jenbrewster40 asked.

@kazzadee1970 echoed: "Where are your arms and legs. Just looks like you are a floating dress and head."

"Why did I think you were floating," @lauratrodd__ commented.

@nikki_89_jane said: "Omg thought you was a mannequin then."

"It took me a minute to realise you weren’t legless on a stand," @hayjohnsn_ added.

@ anita_c_graham892 replied: " I had to do a double take when looking at this photo cause it looks like you have turned into a human mannequin ... I didn't see the huge jewel you're looking at or the reflection of your leg either."

Others, however, were quick to joked about the huge stone she was looking at.

"But I thought the old lady dropped it into the ocean at the end??" @amanda_d1982 joked.

@at_home_with_the_pells shared: "Thought rose threw that back in the ocean."

"Looks like the heart of the ocean ! #titanic," @gemmadale2021 added.
