Hit show, Late Late Show bosses have offered comedian and Television host, James Corden a new two year deal worth £7million.
The presenter, 42, is currently on a £4.6million deal until next year and his bosses at CBS are hoping to convince him to stay longer, even though he plans to return to the UK, where he is from, according to a new report by Sun UK.
James has hosted the show since 2014, when he took over from Scottish comedian Craig Ferguson.
He introduced the popular Carpool Karaoke section on the show, which has had guests like Adele, Paul McCartney, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder and Ed Sheeran.
But reports say he was planning to return to the UK after his current deal expires.
A source said: ‘The network love him. They are delighted with his work and reach in that tough late-night slot.’
They added: ‘Previously, James passed on a five-year deal to remain for 24 months, but he has lots more to give and he is very much in the driving seat.’
It comes after James revealed in 2020 that he and his family are missing living in the UK so much that he could quit The Late Late Show when his contract expires and move back as the coronavirus pandemic has made him feel homesick for England.
‘I have a couple of years to go on this contract,’ James told The Sun’s Bizarre column. ‘Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one.
‘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.’
