As well as sitting down for a chat with Corden, President Biden lets the TV host and actor loose in the White House by agreeing to the Take A Break segment, where he will be seen causing uproar as he fills in as assistant to Biden, as well as taking on other important duties.

Corden's Late Late Show also includes viewer favourite Carpool Karaoke, where a famous singer joins him for a drive and a sing-song - with Grammy Award winner Lizzo buckling up alongside him in next week's episodes.

This is the fourth time that the show has filmed from London, although the last time was in 2019 because of coronavirus pandemic restrictions.

Earlier this year, Corden made the surprise announcement that he would be leaving his hugely successful role as the show's host.

He has another year left on screen, but after that wants to be able to travel home to the UK more often so that he and his wife can see their families.

Corden said: "When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know? And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it.

"And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there."

The Late Late Show episodes from the UK will air on Sky Comedy and stream on NOW between Tuesday, 28 June and Friday, 1 July.
