The devastating loss comes after she recently got back on the roads following a driving ban.

Back in January, she was hit with a six-month driving ban and fined £1,660, after she was clocked speeding at 101mph.

Ellie was caught breaking the 70mph speed limit as she drove a Mercedes-Benz GLC on the Cudworth, Warwickshire, section of the M42 on June 5, 2019.  

Appearing at Coventry Magistrates Court following her return from Dubai, Ellie pleaded that a ban from the road would cause ‘exceptional hardship’.

This is due to the fact her work as an influencer demanded she transport herself all over the country.

But her plea was ultimately rejected, and she received six points on her license, bringing her total to 12 and resulting in an automatic six-month ban.

The ban expired in July and the star was back on the road as of August.
