Corden has been filming the show from his garage in recent weeks due to the coronavirus shutdown.

The actor and presenter recently choked up on live television, revealing he is often “overwhelmed with sadness” amid the pandemic.

“I’ve found it tougher than I ever thought I would,” he explained. “I’ve found myself having these incredible spikes of anxiety and sadness when I’ve allowed myself to think about my family back home in England, or my friends or the people I love.”
