“One of the great things about the old Late Late Show was not knowing who the guests were until they appeared on screen, it kept the whole thing lively, so I just thought well how would it be if the host didn’t know who they were until they walked out either. Every time I thought about it, it just made me laugh so…………let’s see ! Doing it front of a live audience is the key for me, it all seems like good unpredictable fun.”
