We’re used to seeing her entertain audiences on American programme The Ellen Show.
But on Sunday some lucky Dubai folk got to experience Ellen DeGeneres in person.
The daytime TV host enjoyed her time at The Act Dubai – based inside the Shangri-La Hotel - and appeared to be delighted to meet the talented performers who take to the famous stage each night.
The comedienne was joined by actress Portia de Rossi for dinner at the Peruvian place too.
Check out the pictures to see what the pair got up to at the bash where no tickets were on sale and exact details of the bash remain hush hush.
Ellen, 57, isn’t the only famous US celebrity to join us in the desert this week, Khloe Kardshian is also here.
