Ellen DeGeneres Promises To Address Chat Show Controversy: ‘Yes, We’re Gonna Talk About It’
Ellen DeGeneres has suggested she will address the controversy surrounding her US chat show when it returns later this month. On Tuesday, Ellen said via a press release that she “couldn’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio,” before adding: “And yes, we’re gonna talk about it.” The “it” presumably refers to the claims of workplace misconduct levelled against the Ellen DeGeneres Show by former staffers.

Although Corden had been tipped as a replacement, he put the suggestion to bed during a game of 'Spill Your Guts or Fills Your Guts' on The Late Late Show.

While playing Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts with Alicia Keys — a game that allows players to get out of answering tough questions by eating questionable “food” — Alicia asked James if there was any truth to talk that he’s taking over on Ellen, or whether he’d ever co
"I think somebody started a rumour somewhere and someone jumped on it. There is absolutely no truth in that story at all, zero."

She said: “As you may have heard, this summer there were allegations of a toxic work environment at our show and then there was an investigation.
