A LITTLE while ago we graciously handed British treasure James Corden over to the US.He went with a dream of making it big in Hollywood, and it turns out his friendly witty style went down a storm - with his Late Late Show proving an instant success.Carpool Karaoke came to life as a segment on James' US late night talk show The Late Late Show.The concept is simple: James gets in a car, picks up a 'random' passenger (typically a triple-A pop artist) in an 'eco-friendly' carpooling style and drives off.En route to their destination - usually CBS studios - James pops on some of their music, they sing along together and hilarity ensues.The ridiculously talented James Corden always knows all of the words, and is a fine singer too.The feature is a staple of Corden's show now, but it actually started as a hilarious sketch for Comic Relief with George Michael back in 2011.In the original sketch, the pair hurl insults at each other in the car before singing along to Wham!'s I'm Your … [Read more...] about What is James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke, which celebrities have taken part and how can you watch it on Apple Music?

ALAN Carr has a bone to pick: Chatty Man may be taking an indefinite break, but it wasn’t axed.“The thing that p**ses me off is that I’m really honest, so I would say it had been axed if it had been axed,” explains the funnyman, 40.“I am not too proud to be axed, but it gives off the wrong impression because it wasn’t. I just wanted to do something different. I don’t know what I am going to get from two more series of a chat show because it’s the same old, same old.”As a result, the comic is back on Channel 4 with a new, fresher format, Alan Carr’s Happy Hour.
