Alison Hammond gifted long-time West Ham fan James Corden ‘the nicest gift’ ever: a seat from the football team’s former stadium Upton Park.

The This Morning host was meeting The Late Late Show presenter as he returned to the UK for special episodes of his US chat-show, which features an iconic mix of celebrity guests including Lizzo, Ed Sheeran, and even President Biden.

Gifting him with a welcome home present, Alison handed James ‘an actual seat from the stands of his beloved West Ham’s former stadium,’ as the Gavin and Stacey star’s jaw dropped in excitement and shock.

‘This is a money can buy present,’ Alison said, adding as she chuckled: ‘Because we bought it!’

James, who even celebrated his stag do with a surprise visit to Upton Park, was left speechless.

‘I love it, I absolutely… Oh my God. I love this so much. That is the nicest gift you could ever have given me,’ he told Alison.

Elsewhere in the interview, Alison asked if she could have James’ job as he’s departing from the hot seat in a year and James replied, ‘If I had it my way, 100 per cent, you would be amazing at it!’

Alison then sat in James’ seat and said, ‘I feel quite at home here, babes!’

This marks the fourth time that the Late Late Show has graced the UK – and will be the first time the show has been back in London since the pandemic.

The Gavin and Stacey actor promised that his final season on our screens would go out with a bang, and it looks like he is keeping good on that guarantee.

Earlier this year, James confirmed that he will be stepping away from hosting duties in 2023.

The Cats star first started hosting the CBS show in 2015 and has been a staple of our screens ever since.

‘It’s been a really hard decision to leave because I’m so immensely proud of the show. I’m thrilled to be extending [for a year]. I always thought I’d do it for five years and then leave and then I stayed on,’ he said at the time.

‘I’ve really been thinking about it for a long time, thinking whether there might be one more adventure.

‘My bosses here at CBS have been incredibly supportive and extraordinarily patient with me while I made this decision.’

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV and ITV Hub.
