Ellen DeGeneres and Jason Donovan will be turning heads in London as they attend the UK premiere of Finding Dory.

The popular US talk show host lends her voice to the amnesiac Dory in the sequel to the hugely popular Finding Nemo.

An eclectic mix of UK celebrities is expected to hit the red carpet in Leicester Square, including The Great British Bake Off 2015 winner Nadiya Hussain and Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor.

The animation welcomes back to the big screen the forgetful blue tang Dory who is living happily in the reef with Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (Albert Brooks).

When Dory suddenly remembers that she has a family somewhere who may be looking for her, they embark on a life-changing adventure across the ocean to California's Marine Life Institute, where she enlists the help of some of the aquarium's most interesting residents.

US box office results for the film, which has a soundtrack composed by Thomas Newman, saw it surpass Toy Story 3's $US110.3 million ($A147.43 million) to become the biggest Disney/Pixar animated opening.

Director Andrew Stanton, who co-wrote all of the Toy Story films, will also be gracing the red carpet on Sunday.
