James Corden has reacted to the result of the EU Referendum.

The British TV presenter has said he's struggling to come to terms with Britain's shock decision to leave the European Union.

He told fans on Twitter: "I can't get my head around what's happening in Britain. I'm so sorry to the youth of Britain. I fear you've been let down today."

The Late Late Show host had waded into the Brexit debate earlier in the week on his show, encouraging his fellow Brits to vote to remain in the EU.

He said: "I really hope we all vote to remain in the EU. It will be better for our economy, better for our industry, and better for our international relations.

"But mostly because it represents so much more than that."

He went on: "In today's world, barriers should be going down, not going up. Our show plays in 135 countries, I don't even think I can name 135 countries."

"Wherever someone was born, we can share the same jokes and stories and interests. Ultimately, we are all in this together. I hope the people of Britain go out and vote remain," added Corden.

Harry Potter author, JK Rowling, also took to Twitter to express her dismay as it became clear that the Leave party were leading the votes.

She tweeted: “I don’t think I’ve ever wanted magic more.”
