James Corden says his heritage means he will never be able to host a prime-time show on American television.
The popular talk show host, who has the popular segment Carpool Karaoke, could have been scoping a new time slot.
The 37-year-old has hosted the popular CBS show, The Late Late Show, since March 2015 and has realised he will never get a prime time slot in the US.
“I mean this, I’m not being coy in any way, that’s never gonna happen,” he said.
“It’s a different legacy that you’re building. I’m British, and I don’t know if America wants to listen to some British guy when sh** actually happens.”
He believes he wouldn’t be able to achieve the same respect American audiences have towards popular comedy presenters Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno and David Letterman.
