Gogglebox’s Ellie Warner receives double tattoo in tribute to Amy Winehouse on 10th anniversary of her death
GOGGLEBOX’s Ellie Warner has a double tattoo in tribute to Amy Winehouse on the 10th anniversary of her death.
The reality TV star, 29, proudly showed off the stunning design on her Instagram Story.
Ellie’s tattoo artist Lara Thompson Griffiths shared a photo of a love heart tattoo on her social media platform on Tuesday.
She made the language speak when she asked her Instagram followers, “#homagetattoo. What celebrity does Miss Ellie remember with that? Who thinks they know?”
Ellie then took her own account and reposted a photo of her new ink in which she was tagged with the caption: “@ellie__warner IYKYK” which means “if you know, you know”.
And while she doesn’t explicitly say it’s for Amy Winehouse, the design is identical to the singer’s – which was on her right arm.
On top of that, the timing is another clue that he’s dedicated to the beloved star.
Ellie’s permanent reminder of Amy comes days after the 10th anniversary of the death.
The music legend sadly passed away on July 23, 2011.
The London-born star’s ups and downs have been well documented in the media, but her mother Janis has hoped the new documentary Reclaiming Amy will tell her daughter’s true story.
The unique hour-long documentary aired last week on BBC Two.
It included unpublished personal archives of Amy from the family and treasures from the BBC archives.
The film had a powerful and sensitive tale of one of Britain’s most beloved and missed musical talents, and offered a new female take on his life, loves and legacy.
Amy’s life has been celebrated across the BBC with a selection of content and musical performances on TV, iPlayer and BBC Sounds.
Ellie isn’t the only famous face to have had a tribute tattoo over the years.
The likes of Katie Price, Kelly Osbourne, and Miley Cyrus also have something similar inked on their bodies.
Ellie rose to fame in the Channel 4 show’s sixth series in 2015 alongside her sister Izzi.
The two have become fan favorites with their good on-screen jokes, down-to-earth personalities, and hilarious comments.
When the Leeds girl isn’t filming for the TV show, she works as a hairdresser.
Ellie lives with her boyfriend Nat and their three adorable dogs Mick, Madge and Morris.
Meanwhile, her sister Izzi works as a mortgage consultant and is a mom to five-year-old son Bobby and baby daughter Bessie Rose.
