James Corden’s late night show has been cancelled for the next few days he tested positive for Covid-19.
The host shared the news on Instagram in a statement, writing: ‘I just tested positive for Covid-19.
‘I’m fully vaccinated, boosted, and because of this I am fortunate enough to say I feel completely fine. The show will be off air for the next few days. Stay safe everyone. All my love, James.’
It has not yet been confirmed when the Late Late Show will be back on air.
James, 43, most recently interviewed stars including Penelope Cruz and Jessica Chastain on the nightly show, which he has hosted since March 2015.
The show is filmed in Los Angeles, with the city recording more than 37,000 new cases on Thursday.
He’s the second late night host to test positive in a matter of days, after Seth Meyers’ show was also taken off air.
Seth said he ‘feels fine’ and praised the vaccine rollout before revealing he’ll be hosting the show again from Monday.
‘The bad news is, I tested positive for COVID (thanks, 2022!),’ he wrote.
‘The good news is, I feel fine (thanks vaccines and booster!) We are canceling the rest of the shows this week, so tune in next Monday to see what cool location we will try and pass off as a studio!!!’
Elsewhere in the world of late night, Saturday Night Live was forced to change up its traditional Christmas episode in December to comply with Covid restrictions.
Paul Rudd hosted the programme and introduced largely pre-recorded sections, with no audience and no musical guest appearing on the show.
Jimmy Fallon also recently revealed he’d tested positive for Covid-19 on Instagram and posted a picture of himself ahead of Monday night’s episode wearing a mask and sitting inside an isolation room.
