The television star, who currently hosts the Late Late Show in America, has turned to social media to support a planned march through Blackpool this weekend.

More than a thousand supporters are expected to protest ahead of Saturday’s game against Wigan, dubbed Judgement Day 2.

It’s a follow-up to last season’s action which ended with Pool’s game against Huddersfield being abandoned after a pitch invasion.

And Corden last night tweeted to his 6.7m followers in support of the march, saying: “I fully support this,” before posting a picture of a flyer marking out the route.

Fans will march from the Stanley Arms Pub on Church Street through the town from 10:30am before arriving at Bloomfield Road ahead of a 12:30pm kick-off.
