Pop hunk Justin Timberlake provided ELLEN DeGENERES with a sweet treat yesterday (17DEC04), when he appeared on her show dressed as a gingerbread man.

Earlier this month (DEC04), DeGeneres kicked off her 12 Days of Giveaways drive, in which she handed her studio audience Christmas gifts hauled out by a mystery gingerbread man each day. When the 12 days of handouts came to an end on Friday, DeGeneresdecided to make an enquiry about the man under the costume, and pulled away the mask to reveal Timberlake, prompting wild screams from the women in the audience.

Feigning shock, DeGeneres said, "Wow. I had no idea that Justin Timberlake would do something like this."

Timberlake, who declared he felt "sexy" in his costume, then brought out a costume for DeGeneres to dress up as a glass of milk, before the pair danced to Mc Hammer's 1990 hit U CAN'T TOUCH THIS.
