In the clip, Adele offers to drive James to work for the final episode of Carpool Karaoke, before quickly adding that she’s not a great driver. She also clarified she can’t sing without closing her eyes.

Adele said: “Last week of work, I’m going to drive you to work. Let’s do the final carpool. I’m actually not a brilliant driver… I also can’t sing without closing my eyes.”

“Well this is brilliant,” Corden replied. He added he was “excited and scared in equal measure” to be leaving. “It’s been a crazy eight years,” he said. Adele said she was “very, very sad” about his departure.

Adele spoke fondly of her friend, saying she and her son had relied on him during her divorce. James said he turned to Adele when he was struggling with comments on the internet in a discussion on their friendship and the ways they have helped each other with their mental health.
