HE MAY be a divisive figure among TV fans but James Corden could be about to win himself some new friends in Ireland amid reports he is lining up Bono for an appearance on The Late Late Show in the US.
The presenter is reportedly keen on bringing the U2 frontman onto the show to star in a new edition of the popular segment Carpool Karaoke.
A hit segment with viewers of the show and fans on social media alike, it sees Corden duet with a host of famous names from the world of music.
Madonna, Elton John and Stevie Wonder are just a few of the music legends who have previously performed alongside the Gavin & Stacy star.
They could soon be joined by Bono with Corden confirmed, in an interview with The Irish Sun, that he is actively pursuing the Irishman over an appearance on the show.
Even better still, the television host confirmed he is open to the idea of filming the episode in Dublin if it means the U2 star can feature on the show.
"We’ve reached out to Bono a few times," Corden said.
"We’re told he’s game, but we haven’t managed to fit in with his schedule so far. I’d happily drive around Dublin or LA with him, whichever he preferred".
Bono’s not the only big Irish name Corden’s keen to book, with singer-songwriter Glen Hansard on the wish-list too.
The actor and presenter also bemoaned the fact he hadn’t been able to attract the likes of Imelda May or Sinead O’Connor, either.
