The Ellen DeGeneres show will definitively say goodbye to the audience on May 26 and will do so by closing a circle of almost 20 years. The actress Jennifer Aniston, with whom the famous comedian maintains a long and close relationship, will be the last guest on the television space and, surely, both will remember some moments of that first and funny talk that both had in the first episode of the show, issued in 2003.
But the one who was the protagonist of the mythical series ‘Friends’ will not be the only star to return to sit on the interview couch. The singer Pink will also make an appearance in such an emotional farewell and, previously, figures such as Oprah Winfrey, Zac Efron, Justin Timberlake and Keith Urban will have passed through the set, according to sources from the production environment.

It has been the great privilege of my life”, assured the veteran comedian, whose program will be replaced in September by the one already presented by the singer Kelly Clarkson.
