James Corden: My delight at US Late Late Show reaction
James Corden has said he was "blown away" after his US talk show debut elicited a warm response from viewers.
The British Gavin And Stacey star made his first outing as host of the Late Late Show on US network CBS. He takes over from Scottish-born Craig Ferguson.
Corden, who was relatively unknown in America, enjoyed a star-packed guest list, including Tom Hanks and Mila Kunis, for his first show.
He joked about his "shock" at landing the gig and wiped away a tear as he thanked his parents for being in the audience.
Afterwards, he told fans on Twitter: "Well, so many truly lovely messages about the show tonight. I'm blown away, thank you."
