James Corden is reportedly being lined up by ITV to stand in for Ant McPartlin during the finale of Saturday Night Takeaway.

According to the Daily Star, James, who presents The Late Late Show in the US, is in talks to join Declan Donnelly for the Orlando-based finale on April 7th.

Dec will present this week's edition of the show solo for the first time after Ant went back to rehab following his arrest for drink driving.

Last weekend's episode of Saturday Night Takeaway was cancelled as crisis talks continued, however ITV and Dec confirmed that the final two shows will go ahead. 

James, who has found huge success in the US, was the guest announcer on Saturday Night Takeaway two weeks ago, and is also a good friend of the presenting duo.

According to the Daily Star, the chat show host will jet from his base in Los Angeles to Universal Orlando Resort, where the finale is taking place.

ITV are also said to be recruiting Hollywood stars including Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Bruce Willis as an extra boost for the anticipated show, which will host lucky competition winners from the series.

 "Dec has got a big job on his hands fronting a live show from the States all on his own.

"Although he will have fellow show stars Scarlett Moffatt and Stephen Mulhern there to assist, the producers want to add some sparkle with some big Tinseltown names."
