Katherine Heigl may have voiced a desire to return to Grey's Anatomy, but it isn't happening anytime soon, according to Ellen Pompeo.
The Knocked Up actress bowed out of the series for good in 2010 after a series of rumours about on-set fall-outs.
She has since enjoyed a lukewarm film career, with her new film 'One For The Money' out in UK cinemas now. It debuted at No. 10 in the box office charts in its opening weekend.
She told E! last month: "I’ve told them I want to [return, but] I don’t know if it fits into their sort of vision for this season or next or however many seasons it goes."
Speaking on Chelsea Lately, Pompeo - who plays the titular character in the series - shook her head when asked about the potential comeback, and said: "I don’t think so."
She added definitively: "No. I don’t think that’s happening."
