“Ending the show will always be a bigger family decision than a professional one,” the paper quoted Corden as saying.

“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.

“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.”

The star said he had a couple of years left to go on his current contract.
