James Corden reveals the rift between himself and Matthew Horne
James Corden has revealed that he and comedy partner Matthew Horne, who were once inseparable, drifted apart after their sketch show failed drastically.
James and Matthew were of course among the stars of hit comedy Gavin and Stacey, but after that ended, they went on to pen and feature in Horne and Corden, which was slated by viewers and critics.
Speaking to the Daily Star, James discussed the rift that the pair experienced after the show flopped.
He said, “We had such an intense love for each other…
“We never fell out, it was never that. We were one person for a long time.
“Things were offered to us after Gavin And Stacey and we just rushed into them. If I have one regret, it was we just rushed those things.
“We never stopped to think about the work enough.
“We did our own sketch show but the reaction was fierce. It was hard to go through that. We were riding this amazing wave and then it just dropped.
“In one year we spent 263 days together and we went from that to nothing.
“We didn’t speak for a few months. We both had to find and establish ourselves outside the two of us. We never planned to be a double act.
“We talk occasionally. I still count him as a dear friend.
“I love him very much. He is so talented. I love him to bits.”
