James Corden Late Late Show

James Corden's US chat show The Late Late Show IS coming to the UK for three special episodes, which will air on Sky 1, it's been confirmed.

James's incarnation of CBS's late night franchise has become a massive hit, largely thanks to the viral success of its Carpool Karaoke segment.

Now, two years after the Gavin & Stacey comedian took over hosting duties, he's bringing the show this side of the pond.

Bosses today announced plans to film three episodes of The Late Late Show in London in early June.

They will see James share the "highlights of his homeland" with American viewers, and give a British twist to his regular comedy segments.

The specials, which will be recorded at Westminster's Central Hall, go out on CBS between June 6th-8th.

UK viewers can watch them on Sky 1 between June 7th-9th, at 10.00pm each night. They will also be available on NOW TV.

James said: "To bring The Late Late Show to the UK is a dream come true for me.

"I'm incredibly proud of the show and we're going to do our best to make this week in London memorable."

Adam MacDonald, Director of Sky 1, added: "I’m beyond excited that James and The Late Late Show are coming to the UK for three very special episodes.

"James is hugely loved by the Sky 1 audience and it will be a proud moment for the channel to share what he and The Late Late Show gang have in store for us."

Sky became the UK home of The Late Late Show last July. New episodes are available on Sky's On Demand and NOW TV services one day after their US debut.
