Pop star Harry Styles was given just 2.5 hours notice to fill in as host of** The Late Late Show with James Corden**, after James' wife went into labour, and he did an amazing job.

The 'Sign of The Times' singer made a big entrance to the show with a five minute monologue which started, "No, your eyes do not deceive you – I am not James Corden. I am Harry Styles."

He then continued, “You may be wondering why I’m hosting tonight – and, yes, you are right: Donald Trump finally got sick of James’ jokes and deported him back to England.

"I am of course kidding… just half an hour ago, James and his wife Jules had a beautiful baby girl," to which the audience cheered.

Harry then went on to joke, "In fact, I was at the hospital just before coming over here, and she looks a lot like James – mainly because James looks like a giant baby."

Harry hosted the full show and also addressed THAT kiss, that was shown in the Carpool Karaoke Christmas special which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday. After showing a montage of pop stars singing 'Santa Claus is Comin' To Town', the video ended with Harry and James having a Christmas kiss, which the singer joked would result in the pair having their own baby!

You can watch the highlights of Harry's presenting below:

James announced his happy news in the early hours of the morning to his fans on Twitter saying, 'Today we welcomed a beautiful baby daughter into the world. Both she and her mother are doing great. We can’t stop smiling.'

The little girl, who has yet to be named, is a younger sister to six-year-old Max and three-year-old Carey.

Back in September James Corden revealed the gender of their baby telling press, "She’ll be arriving Christmas - we're very excited."

Continuing, "It will be great, lovely. We're having a little girl, it’s going to be terrific.

Congratulations to James and Julia.
