It's the news fans of ER have been waiting for – the return of dishy doctor Doug Ross.

Hunky actor George Clooney has been asked to return to the hospital drama series which propelled him to international fame. The long-running show has its final episode next year and it's hoped the Michael Clayton star will come back for a special performance.

Among the ex-cast members who have also reportedly been approached is actress Julianna Margulies, who starred as George's on-off love Nurse Carol Hathaway.

According to Scott Grimes, who plays Dr Archie Morris in the programme, there is an "85 per cent" chance heart-throb George will return.

"He knows it's a historical show that's ending and he'd want to be a part of that," says the former Band Of Brothers actor. "He'd do it to help out the show because he's that kinda guy."
