James Corden fought back tears as he explained to viewers of ‘The Late Late Show’ why he has decided to step down from the job.
The TV star, 43, confirmed the news revealing he plans to give up the coveted hosting role in 2023.
“Seven and a half years ago, I started hosting this show. And there is no other way to put it, it has changed my life. I love it. I love all the people that work here. I am so proud of what we’ve achieved. It’s been beyond my wildest, wildest dreams. So, I’m happy to announce today that I’ve signed a new contract, to carry on hosting ‘The Late Late Show’.
“When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know?”
“And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there.”
He went on;
“We are all determined to make this the best year we have ever had making this show. We are going to go out with a bang… And there will be tears. There will be so many tears. Cause this has been the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, it really has.
“I’m so immensely proud of the show,” he said, referring to the late night series as the “most joyous working environment”.
