Corden has some history with the song, featuring the John Barnes rap in series 2 of Gavin & Stacey as well as lyrics in his recent dress-down of the England Football Squad for Comic Relief.
According to reports in The Sun,
A pal of Jimmy’s said: “He is in two minds about it.
“He loved New Order’s version of World In Motion during Italia ’90.
“He would hate to do anything that spoiled the original. On the other hand it is for charity and he loved doing a Comic Relief sketch with the team which featured the lyrics.
“Offering a football fan a chance to make a video with the England side is pretty tempting. It would be a great DVD to show the kids.”
Polling on The Sun site also shows Corden has the support of his fans – 2-1 voting “yes” for the cover.
