Lesbian talk show host Ellen DeGeneres has reportedly taken the bait and signed on to reprise her role as forgetful fish Dory in the Finding Nemo sequel.

According to the LA Times, DeGeneres has agreed play everyone’s favorite blue tang fish with short-term memory loss again.

Rumors regarding the sequel to the Pixar/Disney film have been swimming around for years but were finally confirmed in June last year.

DeGeneres has expressed a great love for the film, and has said numerous times on her daytime talk show how she would love to play Dory again.

Director Andrew Stanton and Albert Brooks, the voice of Nemo’s father Marlin, will also be back for the sequel.

A 3D version of the underwater children’s classic was released last September.

When the original was released in 2003, the film grossed more than $878 million (£552m, €699m) in the worldwide box office.

We will all have to tread water a little while longer though, as the film is slated for release in 2016.
