While Carpool Karaoke is undoubtedly a career boost that any singer would be mad to turn down, it appears that lure wasn't enough to draw in one superstar.

James Corden spilled the beans about one potential guest a few years ago who wasn't quite taken by the idea of singing their biggest hits in a 4x4.

"What happened was, for the anniversary of Back to the Future, we were gonna do a sort of, 'Best of the '80s Carpool Karaoke,'" Corden explained on The Late Late Show with guest Steven Tyler.

"And we had booked – in a DeLorean – Bryan Adams to come and do the thing, and we were very excited.

"I love Bryan Adams, he's got hits for days, he's terrific," he continued. "I don't know that Bryan's management had told Bryan that it was a sort of a collaboration with lots of other singers from that time period.

"So Bryan came in, he's walked in, seen the list of other people that have done it, turned around, walked, and got in his car and left. I've never seen... I've never heard from him. He just bolted. He was gone."

However, Corden admitted he "understood" and held "no grudge" against the 'Summer of '69' singer.

Meanwhile, the presenter has revealed that he is bringing The Late Late Show back to the UK for a series of special episodes.
