James Corden’s ‘Late, Late Show’ debut was met with rave reviews on Monday night, and the show provided fans in the States – and here in Blighty – with plenty to talk about.
With Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis as guests, James delighted critics with his witty, light-hearted banter and he also managed to get Mila to (finally!) open up about her marriage to Ashton Kutcher.
“His easygoing manner fit well with his low-key banter, built more on everyday conversation than showbiz flash,” wrote the New York Daily News’ critic, while one viewer added: “He was adorable and wonderful and just really fun and he just seemed like a kid in a candy store having the greatest time of his life.
“It was really fun to be part of that and, being on the first show, the excitement level was high and he was just so giddy.”
Well done, James! Check out the best bits from the first show below…
