The Late Late Show with James Corden is coming back to the UK, as the former Gavin and Stacey star brings his American chat show back to London for a series of special episodes.

James will host four nights from Central Hall Westminster with guests including Cher, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Niall Horan and Foo Fighters, along with many more who have yet to be announced.

Elsewhere, James, 39, is expected to produce a British twist on his regular segments, such as Crosswalk: The Musical and Take a Break.

The show came to the UK for the first time in 2017. Sadly, it coincided with the Westminster terror attack, which saw James pay an emotional tribute to those affected.

Last year, he pulled in a host of big British names, including Ed Sheeran, David Beckham and One Direction's Harry Styles.

Recently he helped cement himself as British entertainment royalty, as he attended Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's nuptials, along with compering their reception (although he revealed he almost accidentally interrupted the wedding ceremony).

Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show with James Corden, said: 'Broadcasting The Late Late Show from James's hometown of London last year was such a thrill. Thanks to CBS and our partners at Sky One, we are back for a second year. We are looking forward to a fun week in London, putting a UK spin on our nightly show.'

Philip Edgar-Jones, head of entertainment at Sky, said: 'James Corden is one of Sky One's brightest stars and we are delighted to welcome him home for his London recordings of The Late Late Show. And with such a stellar lineup of guests, it's going to make British summer time even hotter.'

The Late Late Show with James Corden will show its London episodes on 19 - 22 June 2018 at 10pm on Sky One and NOW TV in the UK, while CBS will air in the US.
