In the wake of terror attacks here, popular TV host James Corden says he will continue filming "The Late Late Show with James Corden" in the city.
Speaking in front of the Houses of Parliament, Corden said he was determined to go ahead with the three-part special edition, reports express.co.uk.
While walking through the streets of Westminster, the 36-year-old shared a powerful message and said the attack on London Bridge — which left seven people dead and many others injured — "felt incredibly close to home".
"Now as I'm sure you know, a few days ago, Saturday night, this city was attacked and it happened a mile or so that way on London Bridge. I'm so sad when I think about all the times when I took this job that I've had to open our show talking about such atrocities," Corden said.
"Trying to find the right words to say is impossible because there are none. But this time it felt incredibly close to home."
"All of our ‘Late Late Show' staff were out in London on Saturday night having a great time, and we were all staying in a hotel about two minutes away from where the attack took place," he added.
Corden said: "Some people might say it's a strange time to do a variety show in this city. I couldn't disagree more. A lot is gonna happen here in the next few days."
"We're gonna elect a new Prime Minister, and just behind that building there is the Houses of Parliament, a building that represents democracy, something that the people who carried out this attack hate."
Corden said he is "so proud" to be filming in his hometown, and declared "this is not a country that feels afraid".
