    As a result of the pandemic, James has been filming the Late Late Show from home.

    He’s been interviewing guests via video call and has welcomed the likes of Billie Joe Armstrong, Yungblud and Joe Jonas during lockdown.

    There’s been plenty of entertainment for fans to get involved with too, with games such as Pet or Pillow.

    Despite the fun, James has also used his platform to deliver a serious message amid lockdown.

    In his first at home episode, he told fans that he was feeling “overwhelmed”.

    He told fans, “You feel so out of control. It feels so beyond our comprehension, all of it, that I’ve found I get sort of overwhelmed with sadness in it all.”
