Ellen DeGeneres will finally discuss the allegations that, behind the scenes, The Ellen DeGeneres Show is a toxic workplace, when it returns next week. “I can’t wait to get back to work and back to our studio,” the 62-year-old host said in a statement, before adding, “And, yes, we’re gonna talk about it.”

It comes after an investigation into her US chat show began in July when several former employees alleged they experienced racism, fear and intimidation, which was followed by additional accusations of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault against executive producers.
