James Corden won't leave A League of Their Own

James Corden will never quit 'A League of Their Own'.

The 36-year-old presenter adores working on the comical sports quiz and even had it written into his contract for 'The Late, Late Show' that his US schedule would accommodate filming for the Sky series.

He said: "I'll keep doing it as long as the show exists. I love it. IT never feels like work. When I was sorting out the American job, I told them I had a show on British TV that I didn't want to give up, so it was always part of the deal."

James believes the key to the success of the show - which features regular panel members Jamie Redknapp and Andrew Flintoff - is not being mean-spirited and having recognisable guests.

He added to heat magazine: "It's a show that doesn't make fun of people - we're the butt of the jokes, not the guests.

"It's not a snarky panel show where you end up with a comedian you've never heard of being horrible.

"So, for example, this series we've got Jennifer Saunders, who you'd never normally get on this kind of show."
