James Corden and Olly Murs were among the first to send their condolences to the One Direction star
David Beckham thought he was seeing a preview of his new statue at LA Galaxy, but James Corden had other ideas.
James Corden paid emotional tribute to George Michael, saying that the Comic Relief sketch they did together was the “inspiration” behind his popular chat show segment, Carpool Karaoke. In the return of his US talk show, The Late Late Show, on Tuesday, Corden revealed that the news of the pop icon’s death hit him “harder” after reflecting back on a sketch they had teamed up for in 2011. George, who tragically passed away on Christmas Day aged 53, was the first celebrity to ever agree to appear in the comedian’s Carpool Karaoke segment, which went on to inspire a hugely successful series.
