James Corden has hinted he could bring The Late Late Show over to the UK.

The British comic has proved a hit in the US ever since taking over the American talk show from Craig Ferguson in 2014.


And now he's teased plans for a UK version.

"We do have some stuff planned this year – which might involve being in the UK," James revealed.

He told the Radio Times magazine: "We're talking about it now, really.

"We don't know if we'll be able to get it together but it's certainly something I'd love to do, for sure."

And as for guests, James has high hopes with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Victoria and David Beckham on his wish list.

"I don't know if they ever would, but that would be terrific," he said.

While a UK version of The Late Late Show may not be seen for a while yet, a special British Carpool Karaoke will air this year for Comic Relief.

James will be seen teaming up with Take That to raise money for Red Nose Day on March 24.

Take That's Howard Donald told the Radio Times: "It was an amazing experience filming. You don't realise how much work goes into it.


"As soon as you get in the car you've got 30, 40 cameras pointing at you from different angles. You have to be sitting in a certain position. There's a crew of about 25 people. You're in convoy, and you're driving around LA for almost three hours."

Red Nose Day airs on Friday, March 24 on BBC One.
