James Corden loved his bike

'Gavin and Stacey' star James Corden says his best ever Christmas present was a bike

'Gavin and Stacey' star James Corden's best ever Christmas present was a bike.

James, 30, revealed he was fooled into thinking he wasn't getting a bicycle from his parents when he was a teenager.

He said: "My parents explained that bikes were so much cheaper after Christmas, so it would be better to wait just a few days.

"I was really upset as I knew all my mates would have new bikes, so on Christmas morning I was all grumpy."

However, James' parents had secretly planned to present the bike to him - making it all the more exciting when he finally received it.

He added: "Nothing could ever have been better than when I got my Crossroads bike - second hand - when I was 13.

"But we used to keep all the fizzy pop on the patio and my dad asked me to go and get a bottle of dandelion and burdock. So I pulled open the curtains and there was my bike. Amazing."
