James Corden, 36, may be re-thinking the set-up of his stage on the Late Late Show after this! Katie Couric, 58, played one of the greatest celeb pranks ever before her interview with the brand new late night host on the show’s April 1 episode, and she completely freaked him out in the process.

Things started out smoothly for James, who just began hosting the Late Late Show on March 23, as he introduced Katie as the evening’s second guest. But the taping quickly took a turn for the worst!
Instead of gracefully entering via the stage’s long staircase, the journalist tumbled down the entire flight, causing James to rush out of his chair and to her aide. But he was in for quite a surprise when he found Katie at the top of the stairs…and her stunt double, Heidi, perfectly okay at the bottom!
Despite being completely freaked, James had an amazing reaction to the joke, and couldn’t stop laughing afterward. “That’s like our worst nightmare! That is so funny! That is an amazing prank,” he gushed.
“We’ve been talking about these stairs,” he admitted. “We’ve been going back and forth. I was like, ‘Oh my God! Katie Couric just died on this show!’
While the Jimmy Kimmel Live host was sleeping, RiRi snuck into his room at 1:07AM, with her song, “B–ch Better Have My Money” blasting and an army of dancers surrounding her. Sure enough, the ruckus woke Jimmy up, and he was completely shocked to see the singer in his bedroom.
