James Corden dons hair extensions and a mustache for a hippie-inspired look
Late Late Show host James Corden looks really groovy as he parodies the ’60s with some really hippie hair extensions.
The comedian dressed up as fictional pianist Gary Thump – with a comedic mustache – in a skit where he was seen speaking to the Beatles.
James was on his popular American talk show removing mickey from director Peter Jackson’s documentary Get Back, which examines the creation of the legendary Beatles album Let it Be.
As Thump, the Gavin & Stacey star mixed his new footage with the behind-the-scenes moments featured in the epic documentary.
He sees him tell the Beatles how poor their songs are and decide to present some of his own tracks – including one with John Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono.
This sees him kicked out of the studio and banned from returning.
I bet rabid Beatles purists would think he deserves even greater punishment.
But I just think it’s hilarious.
FLOWER POP-UP MESSAGE
ITV is today opening a pop-up store in London as part of its mental health campaign, Britain Get Talking.
It will be launched in Greek Street, Soho, by X-Factor presenter and singer Fleur East in full party attire.
And she’ll be handing out chocolate ears to hammer home the need to listen to herself over the Christmas holidays.
A sweet reminder of a vital message.
The sports debut of Elz the Witch
ELZ the Witch makes his debut on sports streaming service DAZN for tonight’s Arsenal v Barcelona UWCL game from the Emirates Stadium.
She has been on BBC Three’s MOTDx before, is a huge success on Instagram and is one of the newest radio hosts on KISS Fresh.
RICK AND CO… NEXT
IT was one of the most iconic and fleeting sitcoms of the ’80s. Now it has been revealed that The Young Ones could have gone on. . . although reinvented as The Middle-Aged Ones.
The anarchic BBC2 show ran from 1982 to 1984, directed by Nigel Planer as the hippie Neil, the late Rik Mayall as the volatile Rick and Adrien edmonson like heavy metal punk Vyvyan.
Now, one of the show’s creators has revealed that he intends to continue the story.
In Alexei Sayle’s latest podcast, who also starred in the series, one of the writers, Lise Mayer, said, “I always had the idea of doing The Middle-Aged Ones.
“Neil would have cut his hair and wear a costume.” Vyvyan would be in her third marriage, work in a hospital, and still drink too much.
The only reason we didn’t do a third series is because Rik had this romantic idea that we were Fawlty Towers and we had to do two series and get out.
“But I think we could have done a lot more. “
I think Rik was there.
SHE played two queens and now a killer in Sky Atlantic’s new drama, Landscapers.
But Olivia Colman says the role that takes up most of her time is to nanny her dog called Alfred Lord Wagyson.
The Crown star’s pet dog has been diagnosed with diabetes, which means the actor needs to give him insulin to control his blood sugar.
Which was not easy because she is also promoting a real crime thriller Landscapers, which sees her play Susan Edwards, a housewife turned murderer.
Olivia said, “Now we have to give him injections twice a day, but he’s such a brave and good boy. It’s in the skin of the neck where they don’t feel it. He doesn’t show it. He might say, ‘Oh, my God.’ But he’s very brave and now he’s all shiny and shiny again.
The Dog Lover says she’s obsessed with dogs so much that she would consider them a career if acting dries up.
Olivia said, “I could be a dog walker. I’m also pretty good now at injecting insulin into dogs, but only if they need it – not just any old dog at random. “
I don’t think she needs a B career plan just yet.
