James Corden's Late Late Show confirmed for UK

James Corden's 'Late Late Show' will be aired in the UK.

The 36-year-old TV presenter's hit US chat show will air on Sky 1 later this year in weekly one-hour highlight shows, which will include the "best bits" of that week's episodes, and won't feature the people less well known in the UK.

James said: "What is going to happen is that Sky will take it and do an hour-long show, showing the best bits. The pre-recorded parts and any relevant interviews should be shown in the UK.

"It won't feature the American stars who aren't known in Britain, you know, the people on 'CSI' here in America, but the things relevant to the UK will go in.

The 'Gavin and Stacey' star went on to insist that he is not taking his success overseas "for granted", having interviewed the likes of One Direction, Justin Bieber and Anna Kendrick.

Speaking to the Mirror Online, James said: "It's really exciting for us, I am so happy that people will be able to see it in Britain. Let's see how it goes, I am not taking any of this for granted at all but this is great news for us."

This news comes after it was revealed that a number of British broadcasters were battling to air the CBS show.

CBS Distribution president and chief executive Armando Nunezsaid previously said: "The wheel is turning right now. James has done a phenomenal job of reinventing that show. He's an amazing talent and is engaging and captivating and is fast on his feet. He has a very endearing quality about him."
