James Corden is taking a filming break from The Late Late Show after having minor eye surgery.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday (29 April), he told fans: “Hey all. I had to have minor surgery on my eye yesterday. I am doing well and recovering, but won’t be able to film new episodes for a few nights.

“Thank you to everyone who has been watching the Late Late Shows from my garage. I’ll be back soon. Stay safe and well everybody. x

Corden has been filming the show from his garage in recent weeks due to the coronavirus shutdown.

The actor and presenter recently choked up on live television, revealing he is often “overwhelmed with sadness” amid the pandemic.

“I’ve found it tougher than I ever thought I would,” he explained. “I’ve found myself having these incredible spikes of anxiety and sadness when I’ve allowed myself to think about my family back home in England, or my friends or the people I love.”
