James Corden Records Special Message For Military Fans

The Late Late Show host took time out from recording his incredibly popular American chat show to promote BFBS Extra

James Corden The Late Late Show Message Promoting BFBS Extra CBS

James Corden has recorded a personal message for all his military viewers around the world in a video promoting The Late Late Show on BFBS Extra.

The chat show host, whose banter on The Late Late Show has made him a huge star in America, tells fans not to miss the programme if they are British servicemen and women posted overseas - by watching on our BFBS Extra channel.

Corden, who rose to fame as football and curry-loving Smithy on hit comedy sitcom Gavin and Stacey, takes his renowned cheeky charm to the camera, saying:

"From great guests to the best laughs, from Carpool Karaoke to Drop The Mic, catch me, James Corden, on The Late Late Show right around the forces world here, on BFBS Extra."

James is no stranger to BFBS.

In 2016 a The Late Late Show staff member found the hilarious Forces TV blooper below and used it in a feature where a member of the audience had to guess how reporter Victoria Smith was going to finish the clip.

The title of the 2016 YouTube clip below speaks for itself. What had those horses been eating?

Forces TV then used a bit of "it's not what you know but who you know" magic to ask James to record a special Christmas message of support for troops and their families around the forces world.

Luckily James was with his A League Of Their Own co-stars Freddie Flintoff, Jack Whitehall & Jamie Redknapp when he recorded the message so we got more celebrities than we bargained for.

Debbie Barratt, Head of Rights, Acquisitions and Distribution at SSVC, used her strong relationship with Hollywood studios and producers like CBS to get the studio clip recorded for BFBS TV.

"James has been a great supporter of BFBS over the years, so I asked whether he would be able to record a special ‘shout out’ for the British forces.”

BFBS TV connects Britain's Armed Forces and their families around the world by providing unmissable TV from back home. If you're a Hollyoaks fan or can't get enough of The Big Bang Theory you won't miss an episode on BFBS Extra.
