Ellen DeGeneres poses with her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Ellen DeGeneres has been honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

The US talk show host, who wore a grey suit and was joined by partner Portia De Rossi, received the honour in front of fans, family and celebrities including Ryan Seacrest and Jimmy Kimmel.

Ellen revealed she was thrilled with the "amazing" honour, reports E! Online.

During her speech, the comedienne couldn't resist a few jokes, and told the crowd: "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."

Earlier, the 54-year-old, who was also joined by her mum at the event, tweeted fans to jokingly ask whether one would be able to drop her home after the ceremony.

"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," she wrote.
