The show won’t go on.

James Corden announced Thursday that he tested positive for COVID-19 and had to cancel tapings of “The Late Late Show” as he recovers.

“I just tested positive for covid 19. I’m fully vaccinated, boosted and because of this am fortunate enough to say I feel completely fine,” Corden, 43, wrote in a statement posted to his Instagram.

He added, “The show will be off the air for the next few days.”

The “Carpool Karaoke” star also asked that his fans do their best to stay healthy amid the pandemic as cases of the Omicron variant rise.

“Stay safe everyone. All my love, James X,” he wrote.

Corden is just the latest in a string of late-night hosts to come down with the novel coronavirus.

Earlier this week, Seth Meyers had to cancel his “Late Night” show after revealing that he had been infected with COVID-19.

“The bad news is, I tested positive for COVID (thanks, 2022!) the good news is, I feel fine (thanks vaccines and booster!),” Meyers, 48, tweeted Tuesday. “We are canceling the rest of the shows this week, so tune in next Monday to see what cool location we will try and pass off as a studio!!!”

And just a day before, “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon revealed that he had come down with a case of COVID-19 while he was on holiday break but fortunately didn’t feel too sick.

“Hey guys, on the first day of our holiday break I tested positive for COVID,” Fallon, 47, shared. “I was vaccinated and boostered which made me lucky enough to only have mild symptoms.”

He continued, “Thank you to the doctors and nurses who work so hard around the clock to get everyone vaxxed.”
