Explaining his struggles, Corden says, “I’ve realised that every year for the past decade, probably even fifteen years, on January the first I’ve told myself and anyone that would listen that I’m going on a diet, I’m going to lose a load of weight. I’m fed up with being unhealthy, this is the year I’m doing it. Because of that, over Christmas I’ve eaten everything that’s in the fridge because in my head in January I’m starting this diet and it’ll be a success. And as you can see it hasn’t.
It’s starting to get me down in a way. I’ve never been able to stick to anything like that. I’ve spent a long time accepting that this is my body and that’s it. But I really am sick and tired of just doing the same thing every year.”
