James Corden: No one can replace Zayn in 1D
James Corden doesn't think former One Direction star Zayn Malik can be replaced in the boy band
James Corden thinks Zayn Malik is irreplaceable in One Direction.
The 'The Late Late Show...' host thinks 1D are right to continue as a four-piece in the wake of Zayn's departure from the boy band as it wouldn't be right to add a new fifth member.
But Corden firmly believes the pop group have a "rich" future together as a foursome.
Talking on the red carpet at the British Television Academy Awards at London's Theatre Royal, the 36-year-old TV personality said: "No one can replace Zayn, it's about the four of them and they have a very rich and brilliant future ahead of them."
The former 'Gavin & Stacey' star is going to be the first person to interview all of One Direction - Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan - since Zayn left in March.
When asked if he was nervous about the interview on his US talk show, he said: "I'm not nervous, I saw them on Friday ... And I'm seeing them tomorrow, we're filming a skit so it's all good."
On whether he was looking forward to speaking with the 'Steal My Girl' hitmakers, he told ITN: "It's going to be great. I consider them friends, so I just hope we make a fun hour of TV."
Corden jetted in from US especially for the BAFTAs on Sunday (10.05.15) and flew back this morning (11.05.15).
Talking to the BBC, he said: "I'm on the aeroplane longer than I am in London."
One Direction will be on 'The Late Late Show with James Corden' on 14 May.
