A former producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show has spoken out against Ellen DeGeneres and has criticised the celebrities defending her.

Hedda Muskat says she was the first hire on the show when it began in 2003, and she says DeGeneres does not deserve the platform that she has.

The Ellen Show is undergoing an internal investigation by WarnerMedia amid allegations of a "toxic work environment", following a report from Buzzfeed where 10 former and one current workers on the show came forward to accuse the show's three executive producers Ed Glavin, Mary Connelly and Andy Lassner, of "bullying".

Hedda Muskat joined Heather du Plessis-Allan to talk about her experience working on the show.
