However, on Friday, DeGeneres appeared to confirm she has scored the gig.
When asked on camera f she was keen to do a tell-all interview with Meghan, DeGeneres responding: "Sure, I'm excited."
She was out walking in a LA neighbourhood at the time and was on a phone call, so it's unclear how serious her response was.
However behind the scenes, plans are reportedly already in place to set up the tell-all interview.
"Ellen and Meghan have already discussed a sit-down interview. That has been in the works for quite some time now," a source at the Ellen Show confirmed to the Daily Mail.
