James Corden Reflects on Emotional Final Episode of The Late Late Show

...By Henry George for TDPel Media.

James Corden has described his experience of filming his last episode of The Late Late Show as “crazy,” but he admitted he knows in his “core” that it is time for him to move on.


Corden, who has hosted the US talk show for over eight years, has become a household name in the country and rubbed shoulders with Hollywood stars.

He called the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show after the final recording, which will air on Thursday night.

The British comedian confirmed that US comedian Will Ferrell and pop superstar Harry Styles will feature, while Coldplay frontman Chris Martin will play as part of the house band.

Corden said that he had never expected the show to become a success, describing the experience as a “glorious ride.”

He stated, “I don’t look like I should be hosting an American late-night talk show.

I’m from High Wycombe.


This isn’t a road that’s often travelled.”

Adele, a long-time friend of Corden’s, will return for a final installment of Carpool Karaoke, due to air as an hour-long special before the main show on Thursday.

Reflecting on the BBC sitcom that made his name, Corden said, “I can remember when we did the last episode of season three of Gavin & Stacey and I can remember sitting with Ruth Jones and crying.”

He called the experience a pretty constant eight years.

Corden stated that tomorrow’s show, which will be the 1,200th show, will be great, and he wanted to cherish it and not spend the whole day crying.

Corden said he felt good about his decision to move on from the show, and he just knows in his core that it’s the right thing to do for so many personal and professional reasons.

He stated, “We’re really going to try and go out with a bang.

The last few shows we have done have been brilliant, the atmosphere in the studio is great.


We have had some really big guests come down and do stuff, and tomorrow’s show is going to be great.

I just want to cherish it and not spend the whole day crying.

Just spend the whole day just feeling pride and gratitude and joy about it all really.”

Previous guests on the show have included Sir Paul McCartney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Justin Bieber, Stevie Wonder, and Mariah Carey.

The final run has featured the typical run of stars, including return visits from the likes of Josh Gad, Gal Gadot, Mila Kunis, the Jonas Brothers, and Billie Eilish.
