Corden is a BAFTA and Tony award-winning English actor, comedian, writer and producer, active since the late 1990s. His television credits include the BBC One comedy Gavin & Stacey, co-starring and co-created by Ruth Jones and co-starring Joanna Page, and the BBC Three comedy, Horne & Corden. His film credits include How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, with Simon Pegg and Fenella Woolgar; and Lesbian Vampire Killers, with Paul McGann.
Thanks to his "centrepiece" comedy skeches in 2008, 2009 and 2010, he is heavily identified with Sport Relief, a biennial charity event similar to, and produced by, Comic Relief. Public perception of him as a figure associated with both comedy and sport likely led to him landing a job as the presenter of the comedy sports quiz A League of Their Own.
Also, Corden hosted the BRIT Awards in 2013.
He's recently married and has a son, Max.
In 2014 it was announced that he would be the new host of the American television programme The Late Late Show, taking over from Craig Ferguson, who is coincidentally a huge fan of Doctor Who and a friend of Peter Capaldi, who plays the Twelfth Doctor. Also coincidentally, the previous host of the programme, Craig Kilborn, also had the first name Craig - much like Corden's Doctor Who character.
