TV Corden's childhood woe Fertility more crucial than job

Funnyman James Corden found himself on the receiving end of jokes as a schoolboy -- when word got round that his middle name is Kimberly.

"Literally every man in my family has it -- it's a tradition.

"For ages I pretended it was Karl, but my sister was going out with one of my mates and told him, then he told the whole school," he said.

"I found that if you just made them laugh, they'd accept you. I probably used the same tactics then as I do now -- that's the sad thing!"

Being successful at work came in fourth place, followed by having a good appearance in fifth.
