Corden was not a serious student and did not attend university.

On Friday Night with Jonathan Ross (2 November 2007), he confirmed that he was dating the actress Sheridan Smith. After public blips in their relationship, Corden confirmed his relationship with Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps star Sheridan was back on, in July 2008, after telling friends "The time away has been good for us and I know we have something special. We're taking it slowly and I am more than happy. She is my best mate, too."

Corden is a fan of West Ham United, which causes conflict with his Gavin & Stacey co-star Mathew Horne, who is a Tottenham Hotspur fan. Following an appearance on Soccer AM in January 2007, Corden revealed that he has attended many West Ham United games with fellow supporter Russell Brand.

Career

Corden waited eight years for his first part, a dancer in the West Endmarker:
"I never worked at all, I don't know why.
I think it was the best thing that could have happened to me because it taught me about rejection from a really early age.
At the time it was awful, all my friends were getting parts in paint adverts and stuff."
His first role was in the musical Martin Guerre. He then starred in the British television series Fat Friends as Jamie Rymer, and played Gareth Jones in the series Boyz Unlimited. His TV work includes a role playing a bookish student in Teachers (Series 1, 2000) and he also made a guest appearance in Little Britain.

Corden played a small part in Channel 4/T4's Hollyoaks. He played a caretaker of the local college briefly around 2001-2. In an August 2008 interview with Esquire Magazine he commented on his disdain of the programme and members of the cast. Corden said he would rather die than go back to appear on Hollyoaks, saying: "I met a couple of really good friends there, but it's (only) 20% nice people."

Corden played the role of Timms in the original London stage production of Alan Bennett's play The History Boys, as well as in the Broadway, Sydney, Wellingtonmarker and Hong Kong productions and radio and film versions of the play. Corden stars in the BBC Three comedy Gavin & Stacey that he co-wrote with his Fat Friends co-star Ruth Jones.
