James Corden offered '£7million' to host Late Late Show for two more years

JAMES Corden is being wooed by US TV bosses to stay for another two years with a rumoured £7million deal.

The Late Late Show host, 42, already has a £4.6million deal until next year.

But CBS chiefs are desperate to keep him for longer.

A source said: “The network love him. They are delighted with his work and reach in that tough late-night slot.”

Gavin & Stacey star James took over the Late, Late Show role — one of the biggest jobs on US TV — from Scottish comedian Craig Ferguson in 2014.

His popular Carpool Karaoke segment — featuring stars singing while James drives around LA — has attracted the likes of Michelle Obama, Justin Bieber and Adele, and clips of it are among the most watched online.

His success has allowed him and wife Julia to settle in a £7.5million LA mansion with kids Max, ten, Carey, six, and Charlotte, three.

But James said in December there were “people at home we miss very much who we we are homesick for” and suggested he could move back to Britain.

But CBS chiefs are determined to keep him Stateside.

The source 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.”

James, who has won ten Emmys, recently admitted he keeps all his gongs out of sight so he stays grounded.

He said: “I hide them all away as I don’t know if it is necessarily good for me to see them every day and think, ‘Oh look at me’.

"I think that is where you can come unstuck. If you think you are a bit more of a dude than you really are."
