Mel B has labelled James Corden as one of the “biggest d***head” celebrities she has ever met. 

The former Spice Girl joined comedian Mo Gilligan for The Big Narstie Show on Channel 4 when she was asked the question. 

“Who is the biggest d***head celebrity you’ve ever met?,” Gilligan asked Mel, to which she brutally responded: “So, there’s a few, James Corden, Geri Halliwell, Jessie J … and me.”

First, she jokingly justified including fellow Spice Girl, Geri, saying: “I love her to bits but she’s really f**king annoying.”

And then she spilt the tea on why Corden, who regularly makes headlines for his terrible behaviour, made the cut. 

“I think you always have to be nice to the people that you work with whether it be production, camera guys, sound, lighting.

“We all work for the same thing, so you should always be nice and he hasn’t been very nice.”

Although it is not clear if Mel B and James Corden have ever actually worked on set together, this would track with Corden’s history

In October, James Corden was temporarily barred from New York restaurant Balthazar after the owner claimed he has been “extremely nasty” to his staff. 

Corden addressed the controversy during an episode of The Late Late Show, explaining that his behaviour was in response to the servers bringing food his wife was allergic to and bringing the wrong order three times.

He said: “I didn’t shout or scream, I didn’t get up out of my seat, I didn’t call anyone names or use derogatory language.

“But the truth is I have made a rude, rude comment. And it was wrong. It was an unnecessary comment, it was ungracious to the server.”

Meanwhile, on-screen his extremely camp gay character on Netflix’s The Prom also received backlash. Stephen Fry called his character “gross and offensive, the worst gay face in a long, long time”.

And fans were equally enraged, leading to many being protective of their favourite things in case they end up involving James Corden.

After the Wicked film casting was announced, thousands signed a petition requesting James Corden be kept far away from the film. 

And when it was announced that Rihanna was teaming up with James Corden for their Savage x Fenty Vol. 3 show there was a similar outcry from fans. 

So it seems Mel B is definitely not alone in her disapproval of the actor and TV host.
