Actor is a big fan of TV host's underwear

Patrick Dempsey struts about at home in Ellen DeGeneres branded underwear.

The Grey’s Anatomy star even modelled some when he appeared on her TV show.

The host presented the actor with an array of pants in red, gold and even rubber. 

And when she handed him a black thong, he happily slipped it on.

‘The last time you were here you were talking about how your wife either commenting or complaining that you’re always walking around the house in Ellen underwear,’ she said.

‘And because it’s Valentine’s Day, maybe you can surprise her.’

Patrick, 44, and his wife Jillian Fink have been married for ten years.

They have three-year-old twin boys Darby and Sullivan and daughter Tallulah, 7.
