Lily Allen claims that James Corden ‘came on to her’ in TV interview

Allen points out that "if I’d have shut him down, I would have been labelled snobbish".

Lily Allen has spoken out about an interview with James Corden back in 2008 where she claims the now ‘Late Late Show’ host came onto her.

The interview took place in 2008 on the singer’s show ‘Lily Allen and Friends’ which aired on BBC Three while Corden was promoting his show ‘Gavin and Stacy’, reports Metro.

Allen claims that Corden was flirting with her on the show which, as revealed by a string of tweets, she wasn’t entirely comfortable with.


The incident saw Corden describe the singer as “lovely” to which Allen quickly responded to him joking that he should “just fuck her”.

A Twitter user brought this clip up to Lily Allen this week to which she responded: “No, I wasn’t horny for James cordon either, he came on to me in front of a studio audience, if I’d have shut him down, I would have been labeled cold or up myself or snobbish.”

In response to another Twitter user who defended Corden saying that the singer went on the show to “promote” herself and described the incident as “innocent banter”, to which Allen responded: “It was my show.”

Meanwhile, Allen is set to release a memoir next year, saying the book “won’t be written with shame”.


According to reports, Allen’s memoir will focus on “the trauma and grief of losing a child, the highs and lows of fame, her family story, growing up on Britpop, Glastonbury and the infamous Groucho club”.
