The British presenter has been hosting the programme for two years.

James Corden has hinted he could bring his US chat show to the UK.

The British comedian is about to celebrate his second anniversary as host of CBS’s The Late Late Show, where his popular Carpool Karaoke feature finds him on the road with famous entertainers in the passenger seat as they sing hit songs.

Discussing plans for the year in an interview with Radio Times, he teased: “We do have some stuff planned this year – which might involve being in the UK.”

Asked whether that means a home-grown version of the show or broadcasting from the UK, James, 38, said: “We’re talking about it now, really.

“We don’t know if we’ll be able to get it together but it’s certainly something I’d love to do, for sure.”

If James does bring the programme across the pond, he already has a wish-list of guests that includes Victoria and David Beckham and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

“I don’t know if they ever would but that would be terrific,” he said of the royal couple.
