James Corden would love to stage Carpool Karaoke in the UK

Actor James Corden is trying to bring his Carpool Karaoke segment to the UK

The ‘Late Late Show’ host has admitted to being surprised by the success of the particular segment, in which he shares a car journey with some of the world’s most famous musicians – but has revealed he is trying to bring the feature to his native UK.

He said: “It’s taken us all by surprise, the success, especially of that particular segment.

“But we do have some stuff planned this year – which might involve being in the UK.”

Although there are no concrete plans in place at the moment, James admitted he would love to see it happen.

He explained to the Radio Times: “We’re talking about it now, really. We don’t know if we’ll be able to get it together but it’s certainly something I’d love to do, for sure.”

In February, meanwhile, James revealed he planned to make ‘The Late, Late Show’ “sillier”.

The 38-year-old comic said he is keen to try new things with his popular nightly talk show.

He shared: “I’m always keen to try new things visually, with openings and sketches. I’d like to film the show somewhere else for a week.

“This is what I was writing just this morning. Visually better. More ambitious. And also sillier. Those three things.”

The former ‘Gavin and Stacey’ actor also revealed he gets frustrated when people are surprised by the quality of guests he is able to attract simply because he doesn’t have a peak time slot.

He said: “The only time I get really like, ‘What are you talking about?’ is when anyone will talk about time slots. Which is like telling the time with a sundial. Just the very notion of a television schedule for a show like this is absurd to me.

“I got really cross when we did that ‘Carpool…’ with Adele and someone wrote, ‘How did a 12:30 talk-show host get Adele?’ And I’m like, ‘What world are you living in?’ That clip has been viewed 129 million times. Those are Super Bowl numbers.”The ‘Late Late Show’ host has admitted to being surprised by the success of the particular segment, in which he shares a car journey with some of the world’s
