James Corden’s carpool karaoke feature on his US chat show has proved to be a huge hit on social media channels around the world - and now he has gone right to the top on a special visit to the White House.

Elton John, Adele, Rod Stewart, One Direction, Chris Martin and Stevie Wonder have already joined Corden for his in-car sing-alongs and now he has shared his car with one of the most famous women in the world.

Greeted by First Lady Michelle Obama as he was eventually allowed through the security gates, Corden proceeded to serve up his now familiar mix of music and chat, with the President’s wife game for a laugh as she took a full part in proceedings.

They even had a special guest joining them on the back seat of the car as they cruised around the grounds of the White House for a video that has already attracted millions of viewers in the hours after it was aired in America.

As ever with these carpool karaoke clips, it is hard not to smile when you watch this moment of TV gold:
