High Wycombe celebrity duo James Corden and Leigh-Anne Pinnock helped put the town back on the map following a special performance in the USA yesterday.

Former Holmer Green Senior School and Jackie Palmer Studio student James Corden is currently hosting The Late Late Show to great acclaim, and was led on a trip back down memory lane when inviting chart topping girl group Little Mix to perform.

The X-Factor winning quartet include former Sir William Ramsay student Leigh-Anne and the group are currently touring America.

After their performance on The Late Late Show, which included a cameo from the Gavin and Stacey star, they shared messages on Twitter with Leigh-Anne telling Corden that High Wycombe is not the same without him.

More than 2,000 people retweeted the message and Corden responded by saying “Can't believe I met your sister all those years ago! X”.

James Corden started as the host of the hit American chat show earlier this year and has quizzed a number of high profile guests in recent months.

During his first appearance on the show, he told the world about his hometown.




At the time, he said: “I feel like I have to tell you a little bit about myself, my name is James Corden, I'm 36-years-old, I'm from a place called High Wycombe in Great Britain, which you will almost certainly never had heard of – most people in Great Britain haven't heard it.”

James Corden was acknowledged in the Queen’s New Years Honours List this year with an OBE and community figures looked back fondly on the years he spent in High Wycombe.

Little Mix are currently going from strength to strength too and were recently announced as winners of a Teen Choice Award after celebrating their latest single reaching number one in the UK charts.
