The 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' is set to air in the UK from next Monday following the success of the programme in the US over the past 12 years

The 'Ellen DeGeneres Show' is set to air in the UK.

The talk-variety programme, which has been on screens in the US for the past 12 years, will finally be screened across the nation from next week after ITV2 signed a deal following "decades" of campaigning to get a slot across the pond.

Host Ellen, 57, 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."

The popular chat show, which incorporates comedy, celebrity as well as topical human-interest stories, will air new episodes, in line with the US air date, every weekday at 13:45.

Angela Jain, ITV's Director of Digital Channels and Acquisitions, added: "We're over the moon Ellen DeGeneres is joining ITV2 - her daily mix of Hollywood guests, comedy and great conversation is a welcome addition to the channel."

And, with the success of the show in the US, which has nabbed 55 Daytime Emmy awards and nine Outstanding Daytime Talk Show accolades, it's hardly surprising ITV2 is looking forward to welcoming the hit show to its channel.

'Ellen DeGeneres Show' will air in the UK from January 18.
