James Corden said the coronavirus pandemic made him more nostalgic than ever, as he went further than he had before in discussing the idea of returning to the UK.
The Late Late Show with James Corden The host has spoken of the missing house often in interviews, but in this week’s comments, the actor and presenter said Covid-19 intensified those feelings.
“I have a few years to conclude this contract. Ending the show will always be a more important family decision than a professional one, ”he said of his deal with CBS in quotes published by British newspaper The Sun.
“These will be people back home who we miss a lot, for whom we are homesick. I also feel like my wife and I have three young children, and these are three young grandchildren that we have taken from people.
“It probably seems particularly magnified now during the pandemic, but I have the overwhelming feeling that our family has been walking to the beat of my drum for a very long time.
Although he lives in Los Angeles, Corden has continued to work on British productions, recently appearing on the A league apart: Christmas special for Sky. He did a special episode of Gavin and Stacey last year for the BBC, when he will also appear in the feature film Fulwell 73 Cinderella, which toured in the UK in 2020.
He has already spoken of his return to Britain. “I’m pretty sure we won’t be living here forever,” he said in 2018. In an interview last year, Corden added, “We are far from home, my wife and I, and our children, and there are people at home who we miss dearly and who are dear to our hearts and who are aging.
