It will air on weeknights from August 3 at 11.45pm with a selection of top episodes to date and current episodes from season two.

Brit Corden took over from Craig Ferguson on the Late, Late Show in March and has been praised for his approach to the format. The series has since been sold into Canada’s CTV and Australia’s Eleven, which CBS has a stake in, with further deals in Japan and other territories understood to be close to completion.

TBI understands CBS and Corden jointly agreed to hold back the tape from the UK until a later date until the relatively-nascent format has developed further.

British broadcasters are understood to widely interested in picking up the show, which has seen guests such as Tom Hanks, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mariah Carey appearing since its new presenter came in.

UK-base Fulwell 73 Productions produces the show in association with CBS Television Studios.
