James Corden and wife Julia Carey stepped out for some last minute shopping on Tuesday after flying back to the UK for Christmas. 

The couple, predominantly based in the United States where Corden hosts The Late, Late Show, enjoyed a small taste of their LA lifestyle by venturing into a north London branch of The Good Life café. 

Inspired by New York and coastal California café culture, the popular chain places an emphasis on clean living and low calorie foods – and health conscious Corden was seen with a handful of takeaway items as they made their way onto the street.

The actor and presenter, 43, looked relaxed in a blue winter jacket and jeans as he left the establishment carrying several takeaway bottles. 

He added to his look with a pair of Adidas Yeezy trainers, while an obligatory face covering – reinforced across the United Kingdom to slow the spread of new COVID variant Omicron – concealed his features. 

Julia, 42, was wrapped against the biting London cold in a quilted black gilet and sweater, a look she teamed with a thick wool bobble-hat and skinny jeans.

The appearance follows reports that the TV firm behind his Late Late show was set to be dissolved on December 14. 

Documents show that Fulwell 73 Productions LLP, on which the global star is listed as a designated member, was to be dissolved on Tuesday 14 December.

It is the umbrella company to Fulwell 73’s three other firms, one of which is also being dissolved.

The move appears to mean Corden is no longer involved in the business, which he joined in August 2017 to great fanfare.

Asked whether he would own any of the company after the changes, a spokesman for Fulwell 73 declined to comment.

The firm, jointly based in the UK and the US, is behind Mr Corden’s Late Late Show, as well as the recent programme where singer Adele was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey about her divorce.

According to official documents filed to Companies House, any remaining assets will be transferred to the Crown after it is dissolved. It is not known how much any assets are worth.

The company’s latest accounts, which related to 2019, show it had a turnover of £25.5 million and a profit of £11.5 million.

On home soil: It is unknown how long Corden will remain in the UK before returning to Los Angeles, where he owns a home

Sources close to Fulwell 73 – which was formed by James’ long-standing friend of 18 years, Ben Winston – described the move to dissolve the firm as a ‘procedural technicality with HMRC’, which ‘relates to accounts filed and delays due to the complexities of Covid accounting’.

When a spokesman was asked whether that meant the firm had unpaid tax bills, he declined to comment.

Last week, in a statement, Fulwell 73’s five partners, including James, said they are ‘as committed to the business as they ever have been’, and insisted that ‘Fulwell 73 is thriving’, after instructing celebrity public relations firm Freuds to deal with the media surrounding the company’s current circumstances.
