  1. Glad you mentioned Killing Eve aswell I absolutely love that show. Villanelle is such a great character. ☺️

  2. So clever! 0.13?

  3. He nailed it. Very well done, Mr Corden!!!

  4. James should get an honorary Tony. And yes it’s the ultimate irony that 99% of the audience watching this is NOT doing it live!
