The Late Late Show with James Corden is now a late-night television staple in the US, but the series will be taking a break over the next few days.
In the announcement, the actor and presenter said that although he was feeling "completely fine", "the show will be off the air for the next few days" while he isolates.
Amid the emergence of another wave of cases in the US, James said: "I just tested positive for [COVID-19]. I'm full vaccinated, boosted and because of this am fortunate enough to say I feel completely fine."
He added: "The show will be off the air for the next few days. Stay safe everyone."
Since Corden took over the show seven years ago, the series has gone from strength to strength, but one element of the programme was recently tweaked after viewers criticised a regular segment for being "culturally offensive and insensitive".
Last year, an online petition called for the 'Spill Your Guts' skit to be dropped, arguing that the use of Asian delicacies, such as balut, pídàn, and xuě dòufǔ, as so-called forfeits "encouraged" anti-Asian racism.
Addressing the petition, Corden confirmed that The Late Late Show's 'Spill Your Guts' will no longer "involve or use any of those foods".
"Our show is a show about joy and light and love," he said. "We don't want to make a show to upset anybody."
