James Corden is on track to become the UK's best paid television personality after reportedly signing a £15million, two-year deal with US TV chiefs. 

The Londoner, 43, could surpass Ant and Dec as the highest earning TV star, with his potential £7.5million annual income topping the duo's £6.6million for their stints on ITV.

The presenter's deal with television network CBS expires next year, after six years of being the acclaimed host of The Late Late Show.

However, according to reports in The Sun, industry sources are keen to keep the A-lister on board as the face of the talk show. 

An LA TV insider said: 'CBS has no plan B, James is their guy and who they see staying with them.

'He is one of the faces of the network, he fronts a massively successful show and drives lots of traffic to them online. The figures that are being discussed are around £15million for two years.'

MailOnline contacted representatives for James and CBS for comment. 

James' successful spell on the renowned show has seen him bag three awards, including an Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special.

Yet it is not just this that makes him appealing to the television industry, as the star's online segments such as Carpool Karaoke and Crosswalk Musical rake in further revenue. 

Presenting Friends: The Reunion in May was also another milestone moment in his highly successful career.
