Scheduled to broadcast at 13.45 pm, ITV2 will air new episodes of the current series (in line with US air dates).

Ellen said: "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."

Highlights from the most recent series include the cast of Star Wars, Hillary Clinton and Justin Bieber revealing all to Ellen.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show first premiered on 8 September 2003. To date, the show has won 55 Daytime Emmys including nine for Outstanding Daytime Talk Show.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Ellen's chat show has inked a three-year renewal deal with NBC, keeping her on air through to 2019-20.

"Day in and day out Ellen delivers the best show on television," said Warner Bros. domestic TV distribution TV president Ken Werner. "Ellen and her team produce a completely unique and exciting hour, which is appointment television for viewers everywhere."
