The model-turned-actress took chunks out of her opponents as the trio traded insults on everything from famous older siblings, acting ability and Corden's weight in a rap segment called Drop The Mic.

Corden took the microphone first, taunting Now You See Me 2 star Franco that they actually meant to book his more successful actor brother James, before turning his acid tongue on Delevingne and her new film.

"You're perfect for Suicide Squad - I'm being heartfelt, because when I see you act, it makes me want to kill myself," he rapped.

She shot back: "You'll kill yourself, you promise, is that a fact? I've never heard a better reason for me to act."

Referencing her friend Taylor Swift, Franco, 31, said he hoped there would not be bad blood after he rhymed:"You think you're an actor, in movies right now, t rying to hide an accent thicker than your eyebrow."

He continued: "You're real famous now but the comedown will be hellish. You're not a household name because no one can f****** spell it."

As the rounds went on, Delevingne, 23, kept the abuse coming, bringing both boys down with a jab at their love lives.

"You're both shorter than me and I think that you'll find, I've hooked up with hotter girls than both of you combined," she spat.

Corden did not escape either, and was labelled a "less talented, much fatter Mr Bean" and "a sad, bloated James Bond" by Franco.

But the 37-year-old presenter cut both of them down to size, calling Delevingne a "copy" of older sister Poppy.

"You and Dave have one thing in common, you're only famous now because your older sibling's awesome," Corden jeered.

It was left to the audience to decide the winner, and the loudest cheers rang out for Delevingne, who grabbed all three microphones and dropped them to the floor in triumph.
