James Corden has revealed that he may quit "The Late Late Show." The comedian, who has hosted the show since 2015, said he is missing his family in the U.K. and would reconsider his options when his contract ends in 2022.
"I have a couple of years to go on this contract. Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one," Corden said, according to The Sun. "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."
Corden added that the coronavirus pandemic was deepening his longing to be back home with his wife, Julia, and their three kids, Max, 9, Carey, 6, and Charlotte, 3.
"This probably feels particularly magnified now during the pandemic, but I have an overwhelming feeling that our family has walked to the beat of my drum for a very long time," he said.
The actor also spoke of feeling homesick in an emotional post on Twitter on Christmas day.
"I’ve never felt the distance from family and friends as much as I’ve felt it this year," he tweeted. "Not flying home, not hugging my sisters or watching my folks hug their grandkids. Christmas is different for many of us this year. But I hope so much that you have a good one. All my [heart emoji]! xx"
Corden rose to fame after appearing in the three series British comedy "Gavin & Stacey." His break in the U.S. came in 2012, when the London production "One Man, Two Guvnors," which saw him play the lead, made it to Broadway. Now Corden may already have work secured in a possible revival of the show in Britain, The Sun reported.
