Stars of the Channel 4 series came together on Instagram to mourn the loss of the Queen’s husband.

Leeds based Ellie Warner, who stars on Gogglebox with her sister Izzi, posted a black and white picture of the Duke of Edinburgh to her Instagram stories, which had come from the Royal Family’s official account.

She then went on to comment on her co-stars’, Jenny and Lee’s post, which they had shared in tribute to the duke.

They wrote: “Such sad news RIP Prince Phillip Duke of Edinburgh GOD SAVE THE QUEEN.”(sic)
