James Corden has hinted he’s quitting The Late Late Show because he’s homesick
The Late Late Show host has said he misses the UK, and even more in the current pandemic. “Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one,” the star said. “It will be about people at home who we miss very, very much, who we are homesick for. I also feel like my wife and I have three young children, and they are three young grandchildren that we’ve taken away from people.”
Corden started his US career on New York’s Broadway in One Man Two Guvnors in 2012. He landed the role as host of The Late Late Show in 2015 but says he still has a few years left on the contract.
