James Corden has revealed he's currently in talks to bring his hit US chat show over to the UK.

The British comedian has enjoyed huge success in the States with The Late Late Show, particularly its made-for-viral format Carpool Karaoke which he also recreated at The Grammys while hosting the annual ceremony earlier this year.

Speaking to The Radio Times about his plans for 2017, Corden disclosed: "We do have some stuff planned this year - which might involve being in the UK."

When asked whether that meant a UK version of his show, he said: "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."

The UK have attempted to emulate the US late chat show feel with ITV's recent debut of The Nightly Show - which has so far received poor reviews and a drop in ratings.

Corden's Carpool Karaoke - which has featured stars from Justin Bieber to Michelle Obama - has acquired a whopping 1.2 billion views on YouTube, but the actor admitted he and his team "never thought we'd hit the ground running as fast as we have".

"It's taken us all by surprise, the success, especially of that particular segment [Carpool Karaoke]," he told the publication.

His wish list of celebrities for a British version of the show would include Kate Middleton and Prince William, and Victoria and David Beckham.

"I don't know if they ever would but that [booking the royal couple] would be terrific," he added.
