The Ellen DeGeneres Show is finally making it’s way to the UK, and will be broadcast on ITV2.
Ellen is, of course, a well known and well loved comedian who often uses her show as a platform to discuss key LGBT issues and has had some pretty prominent guests over the years. These include Barack Obama, Caitlyn Jenner, Daniel Craig and way way more.
Ellen’s show has been running since 2003, yet still nets an impressive viewer count of 3.9 million stateside. Now, the show will be airing in the UK on ITV2 every weekday.
Ellen joked in a statement: “After what feels like decades of campaigning I’m so excited that my show is on ITV2. I can literally feel my crumpets tingling down my cockles.”
Angela Jain, ITV2’s Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, had this to say: “We’re over the moon Ellen DeGeneres is joining ITV2 – her daily mix of Hollywood guests, topical comedy and great conversation is a welcome addition to the channel.”
For those of you who are curious, The Ellen DeGeneres Show will be showing every weekday at 1.45pm, a few days behind the US broadcast.
So, hooray for Ellen! Now viewers in the UK can finally enjoy her full show, and not just the small but tantalising clips that get uploaded on her Youtube channel.
