Ellen Degeneres has received the 2477th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The chat show host invited her fans to watch the ceremony by posting a message on Twitter and jokingly asking for a ride home afterwards.

She wrote: "I'm getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today at 11am. Come watch me! Also, I'd love a ride home. 6270 Hollywood Blvd (sic)."

She later added: "So excited to see fans here at the W Hollywood to see me get my star on the Walk of Fame! Come down if you can!"

Ellen was cheered on by Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Kimmel and revealed she was thrilled people would now be walking all over her.

According to E! News, Ellen said: "It is amazing. I spent my entire career trying to conduct myself in a certain way making sure no one walks all over me, only to get to a point where people are going to walk all over me.

"It means so much to me that everyone showed up."
