LONDON — U.S. talkshow “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” will air on U.K. free-to-air channel ITV2 from Jan. 18. The channel will air new episodes of the current season, in line with U.S. air dates, every weekday at 1.45 p.m.
The show, hosted by comedian-actress Ellen DeGeneres, has won 55 Daytime Emmys, including nine for outstanding daytime talkshow. Recent guests have included the cast of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Justin Bieber.
“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 in my cockles,” DeGeneres said.
DeGeneres serves as an executive producer of the series along with Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin, Andy Lassner and Kevin A. Leman II. Originating from Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” is produced by A Very Good Production and WAD Productions, in association with Telepictures. The show is distributed by Warner Bros.
