James Corden says he ‘regrets’ being ‘ungracious’ to waiter
James Corden, 44, received negative feedback from his former colleagues over his attitude behind the scenes on The Late Late Show.
The actor and comedian was recently called the “most difficult and obnoxious presenter” to work with by a director of A League of Their Own.
Producer Craig Duncan, who directed an episode of the Sky show that James hosted, said: “The most difficult and obnoxious presenter I’ve ever worked with is James Corden.”
Now, James is facing more claims from a staff member of The Late Late Show.
“James dug his grave and he can cry all he wants, but he did this to himself,” the source claimed.
“His staff stood behind him for so long, but it got very old. His ego was over the top and he truly believed he was untouchable.”
“It’s not sad. It is karma,” the insider told MailOnline.
“Many people left his shows because he did not treat people how they deserved to be treated.”
Express.co.uk has contracted James’ representatives for comment.
James starred on A League of Their Own from 2010 until 2019 before heading to the US for the Late Late Show gig.

Yet things took a turn for the Gavin and Stacey star when he was accused of “yelling like crazy” after his wife received an omelette with “a little bit of egg white mixed with the egg yolk”.
He addressed the incident on The Late Late Show, saying: “My wife explained that she has a severe food allergy.
“The meals came, my wife was given the food that she was allergic to…her meal came wrong to the table the third time.”
After apologising for the way he handled things at Balthazar, the host received a round of applause from the audience – but the staff at the restaurant still weren’t convinced.
A source said the comedian shouldn’t have ordered an omelette if his wife had an egg allergy, insisting that James was “very, very rude”.
“I’m sorry but that is bulls**t,’ one server said.
Balthazar’s owner Keith McNally initially banned James from his restaurant.
However, after his appearance on The Late Late Show, he took to Twitter to say he’d welcome the Fat Friends star back.
His American success came largely from his popular Carpool Karaokes which saw him drive around with superstars like Adele, Michelle Obama and Paul McCartney.
