James Corden is to become the presenter of The Late Late Show, according to reports.
The actor and presenter is being lined up as the replacement for Scottish-born host Craig Ferguson and will be officially announced shortly, The Wrap reported.
The Gavin and Stacey star’s previous hosting duties have included four stints at the Brit Awards.
James Corden, 35, is set to star alongside Meryl Streep in the Disney film, which opens in the US on Christmas Day and will go towards making him well known on the other side of the Atlantic.
His strong social media presence, which includes 4.3 million Twitter followers, is also seen a factor working in his favour.
James Corden has already had success on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for One Man, Two Guv’nors – a role he originated on the London stage.
Craig Ferguson announced in April this year that he would step down from his role in December.
