The show, which starred America Ferrera as Betty Suarez, ended seven years go.

Ugly Betty told the story of Betty, who worked at Mode magazine, and the life of her family and colleagues. 

The series was cancelled after four series but now Ashley Jensen, who played Betty’s best friend Christina McKinney, has teased it could return for a movie version.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, the Scottish actress discussed the  possibility of reuniting with the cast.

She said: “I think the last time I was here we were talking about that but it seems to not be happening at the moment.

“I don’t know, I mean, gosh…I would love to do it! We all would.

“I think it was a couple of years ago, or just last year, that we had an Ugly Betty reunion and we went and we all got so excited about seeing each other again.”

Ashley added: “It was one of these programmes that really touched a lot of people and I think that a lot of people felt a lot of warmth from it.

“I think there could be scope for a movie, definitely.”

Phillip then joked: “If we keep asking maybe somebody somewhere will listen.”

While Holly said: “Do you know how shocked I’m going to be one day when I ask the question and you reply ‘yes'”, to which Ashley insisted: “I really want to be able to say yes!”

Ashley is currently starring in new drama Love, Lies and Records, which sees cricket star Freddie Flintoff make his acting debut.
