Guess who's coming home? CBS’ Emmy Award-winning 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' will be back to the UK, as the American chat show is to be aired in London for a series of special episodes.
The former Gavin and Stacey star will be back in his native town hosting four nights from Central Hall Westminster with star-studded guests including Cher, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Niall Horan and Foo Fighters and many more who are yet to be announced.

During these London-based episodes, Corden will share highlights of his homeland with American viewers and the episodes will feature musical and comedy segments including 'Crosswalk: The Musical' and 'Take a Break.' But the 39-year-old will be adding his own British twist to his regular segments. The show aired in the UK for the first time in 2017 but unfortunately coincided with the Westminster terror attack, which saw James pay an emotional tribute to those affected.
James Corden was recently spotted in the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, which proved that he is British entertainment royalty. He's also let other British celebrities host on his behalf including Harry Styles.
Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show said: "Broadcasting The Late Late Show from James' hometown of London last year was such a thrill. Thanks to CBS and our partners at Sky One, we are back for a second year. We are looking forward to a fun week in London, putting a UK spin on our nightly show."
Head of entertainment at Sky, Philip Edgar-Jones, added: "James Corden is one of Sky One's brightest stars and we are delighted to welcome him home for his London recordings of The Late Late Show. And with such a stellar lineup of guests, it's going to make British summer time even hotter."
The Late Late Show with James Corden will show its London episodes on 19 - 22 June 2018 at 10pm on Sky One and NOW TV in the UK, while CBS will air in the US.
