The Late Late Show with James Corden returning to UK for more special episodes

Niall Horan, Cher among guests confirmed for US show's latest British invasion

US favourite The Late Late Show with James Corden is returning to the UK for another week of special episodes.


James has become a huge success in America since he took the reins of the iconic CBS late-night franchise in 2015.

Last year, the Gavin & Stacey comedian brought the show to his home country – and now he’s doing it all over again.

CBS and Sky One, the home of The Late Late Show in the UK, announced today that the show will tape another four episodes in London next month.

The A-list line-up of guests includes Cher, Cate Blanchett and former One Direction star Niall Horan.

Orlando Bloom and Foo Fighters are also set to appear, with more big names to be revealed shortly.

The specials will also feature British twists on the show’s regular segments, including ‘Crosswalk: The Musical’ and ‘Take A Break’.


Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show, said: “Broadcasting The Late Late Show from James’s hometown of London last year was such a thrill.

“Thanks to CBS and our partners at Sky One, we are back for a second year. We are looking forward to a fun week in London, putting a UK spin on our nightly show.”

Phil Edgar-Jones, head of entertainment at Sky, added: “James Corden is one of Sky One’s brightest stars.

“We are delighted to welcome him home for his London recordings of The Late Late Show.

“And with such a stellar lineup of guests, it’s going to make British summer time even hotter.”


The specials, filmed at the Central Hall Westminster, will air on Sky One nightly at 10.00pm between Tuesday 19th and Friday 22nd June.

The Late Late Show, known for its viral Carpool Karaoke segment, is available to watch in the UK on Sky’s on-demand service and NOW TV.
