As the world comes to terms with the latest in a string of horrendous terrorist attacks on European soil, James Corden has acknowledged the feeling which many struggle with at a time when terrorist attacks are becoming frighteningly more commonplace.
James began the most recent episode of The Late Late Show with a heartfelt acknowledgement of the terrifying scenes which played out in Barcelona yesterday afternoon.
"When we hear about London or Paris or Stockholm and now Barcelona, you can almost start to become numb to it, like this is becoming something normal and we don’t need to talk about it here on our show," he said.
"But we think we mustn’t allow it to become something that’s normal. We must talk about it so we remember how sad, horrific, and tragic these moments are," James insisted.
"To the people of Barcelona, I just want to add to the rest of the world's outpouring of love and give our thoughts. We are thinking about the victims and their families right now on what must be an unimaginable day of horror for them," he continued.
James explained that his role is to bring light and levity to a "world where it is becoming often too hard to find."
