Ellen DeGeneres was this close to hanging up her dancing shoes.

For 15 years, the comedienne has welcomed viewers into her space as part of her daily talk show.

The Ellen DeGeneres Show is known for having celebrities spill their secrets and play games — as well as Ellen getting down with the audience.

But the 60-year-old has now revealed that her wife, Portia de Rossi, wasn’t so keen on her carrying on with the daytime show which has seen her win multiple People’s Choice Awards.

“I just think she’s such a brilliant actress and standup that it doesn’t have to be this talk show for her creativity,” Portia told The New York Times. “There are other things she could tackle.”

So what persuaded the Finding Dory star not to say goodbye to her show?

Her brother.

Comedian Vance DeGeneres believes that Ellen’s voice is more important than ever during Donald Trump’s presidency, and can act as a unifier.

Either way, we’ll be getting more of The Ellen DeGeneres Show until 2020 as well as her Netflix comedy special, Relatable, which comes out December 18th.
