James Corden asked Justin Timberlake to do Carpool Karaoke 'a million' times

James Corden has asked Justin Timberlake to do Carpool Karaoke "a million" times.

The 38-year-old television presenter hosts the segment - in which he picks up a star in his car and interviews them while singing along to their hits - on his show 'The Late Late Show with James Corden', and is desperate to get his 'Trolls' co-star involved.

Asked if Justin was on board for the segment, James told E! News: "It's really not our choice. It's all up to him, really. I hope so! [I've asked] probably a million [times], so I hope so. I hope when he's got a new record out we'll [get him on].

"Who do you think you're talking to man? I want to do it, but we'll see! I'd love to. We'll see. I hope so, one day. That would be wonderful, it really would."

The presenter then stated that he'd love to get the 35-year-old star to sing his hits such as 'Señorita' and 'Rock Your Body'.

But a collaboration between James and Justin might not be so easy to organise, as the segment requires James to sing in front of his guest - something which he previously admitted he found hard to do in front of the 'Cry Me A River' hitmaker.

Although James enjoyed laying down vocals for the 'Trolls' soundtrack, he was wary about getting in the studio in front of the 'Can't Stop the Feeling' hitmaker, who also served as musical producer on the film.

James said: "I spent like half a day doing singing which is always quite, you know, terrifying if you're me and it's him, but I think I got away with it.

"I think it was fun. I certainly loved it."

James' latest edition of Carpool Karaoke airs on Tuesday (25.10.16) and stars Lady Gaga.
