James, who took over this role in 2014 from Craig Ferguson has given hint last December that he might quit his job and want to move back to the UK. However, the CBS network management is delighted to work with him and retain him by offering 7 million pounds.
He also launched the Carpool Karaoke segment where famous personalities like Adele, Victoria Beckham, and Michelle Obama participated in his show.
There were reports floating around a few months back that James’ personal wealth has more than doubled after he moved to Los Angeles to host ‘The Late Late Show’ full-time. James gained prominence and shot to fame for his role in the British television series Fat Friends as Jamie Rymer. James presently lives in a $7.5 million home in LA along with his wife Julia and children.
According to one insider, “James took a huge gamble when he moved to LA to anchor ‘The Late Late Show’. It could have spectacularly backfired, but it has paid off big time. His career has gone from strength to strength and shows no sign of slowing down. James has invested wisely in Fulwell, which is a company he cares deeply about. He and the other partners have developed it and made it blossom and it is in a very healthy financial state. It has a lot of overheads and his share isn’t cash in the bank but there is no doubt it has been a good investment”.
