Corden in talks to host BBC World Cup show

Digital Spy is reporting that James Corden is in talks to host his own BBC football World Cup show.

… The programme would be similar to David Baddiel and Frank Skinner’s Fantasy Football series.

James is a massive football fan and also very funny so this is the perfect show for him,” said a source. It’s early days but the plan is to borrow elements of Fantasy Football and introduce new format points.

It will have celebrity guests and people from the world of football as well as feature clips of the action in South Africa.”

Corden has long been a football fan. In October, it was reported he was set to host a show on Sky1.

He, along with his character Smithy in Gavin & Stacey, are both ardent West Ham United fans.

And who could forget Smithy’s Comic Relief dressing down of the England Football squad?

We’ll post more about the new show as we learn it.
