James Corden To Exit 'The Late Late Show'? The True Reason, Revealed!
Is James Corden quitting his show?
The British TV host and comedian has hinted that he's ready to quit his US-based show.
The 42-year-old left the UK for a life in the US in 2015 after landing the role in "The Late Late Show."
But apparently, 2020 has been a challenging year for James Corden and his family because he can't travel between the UK and the US because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The "CATS" star is married to TV producer Julia Carey, and they have three kids, Max (9), Carey (6), and Charlotte (3).
The Sun quoted James as feeling "homesick" and feeling farther away from his home country, saying, "I have a couple of years to go on this contract. Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one."
He continued, "It will be about people at home who we miss very, very much, who we are homesick for."
"I also feel like my wife, and I have three young children, and they are three young grandchildren that we've taken away from people."
James Corden also expressed feeling overwhelming because his wife and kids have been walking to "the beat of [his] drum for a very long time," adding, leaving the show feels magnified now because of the coronavirus pandemic.
