James Corden will make one last trip home to London with the Late Late Show before he leaves his late night role next year.
This temporary move will be fourth time that the CBS show has taped in the UK’s capital city. The episodes will run from the 27th June to the 30th from London’s Freemason’s Hall. Despite the change in location, we can expect the show to run in the same timeslot. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the show has been unable to continue it’s annual tradition of taking the show to Corden’s home country.
Previous host of the Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson followed a similar concept, taking the show to several international cities including Paris and Glasgow.
Corden has a number of memorable moments in the United Kingdom over the years on the Late Late Show, including his famed Carpool Karaoke segment with Adele in 2016.
Corden’s last run of shows in London?
It’s likely that this will be the last time Corden hosts his CBS show in London. Earlier this month it was announced the host would leave the show in 2023.
The host said on his show after the announcement: “I never saw [The Late Late Show] as my final destination and I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way, I always want to love making it and I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
The host’s replacement is still undecided, despite a number of names floating around, including British comedy icon, Russell Howard.
It’s always possible we could see Corden host his own UK-based late night show in 2023 alongside Graham Norton and Jonathan Ross.
