Lisa Kudrow has addressed rumours that Ellen DeGeneres is being lined up to host the upcoming Friends reunion.
The hotly-anticipated special episode for HBO Max, which will see Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc and David Schwimmer back together again, was due to film in March.
Speaking on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show Radio Andy to discuss the HBO Max reunion, Lisa revealed that a presenter is undecided.
‘Is there a host?’ Andy asked. ‘Did I hear that Ellen DeGeneres is going to host the reunion?’
Ellen has been at the centre of a media storm in recent months after The Ellen Show faced accusations of a ‘toxic work environment’ backstage, with dozens of employees coming forward with complaints.
The talk show host has promised she will talk about the scandal surrounding the programme when it returns.
‘I can’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio. And, yes, we’re gonna talk about it,’ she said as it was revealed the show would be making its return September 21.

The Friends cast was supposed to get back into the studio on August 17, however, Deadline since reported: ‘That plan was recently called off, and there is no new target date as the situation remains fluid’.
Despite the delays, Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel in the sitcom, remains optimistic about the reunion.
The 51-year-old told the publication: ‘It’s going to be super. You know what? This has also given us more time to make it even more exciting and more fun than it would have been.’
