James Corden will reportedly step back from being the regular host on Series 14 of A League Of Their Own due to schedule clashes.

The Sun reports that the comedy star is to "give someone else a go" in the host's chair for some of the episodes of the new series.

Corden has hosted every instalment of the sports-based panel show since it launched in 2010, but in recent years his schedule has become increasingly busy due to his role hosting The Late Late Show on America's CBS channel.

The Sun says: "It means for the first time in the hit Sky One show's history, James won't be at the helm for a few episodes. He will be replaced by a number of guest hosts."

A source told the paper: "James loves A League Of Their Own and has always ensured he's been able to appear while his career booms in the States. But this summer, work commitments mean he cannot make all of the shows. Hopefully next year he'll return to normal as he misses everybody involved."

Corden has previously described A League Of Their Own as "the greatest job in the world" and explained in the past: "When I got offered the show in America, the first thing I said was, 'I have this show in the UK that I love doing and as long as I'm working in America, I'd love to keep doing this show'."

Series 14 will see Jamie Redknapp and Andrew Flintoff return as team captains again, with Romesh Ranganathan as a regular panellist. Sky has yet to officially comment on the above news. The guest hosts will be revealed at a later date.
