British actor James Corden is setting his sights on becoming a radio presenter.

The funnyman made his name by writing and starring in sitcom Gavin & Stacey, but he is adamant his first love is radio.

He would even happily take on the early starts of a breakfast show, but worries he is not as cheerful as his fans assume.

Corden tells British station Magic Fm, "I would love to become a Dj. It's the most personal medium that still exists between host and listener. I'd take on breakfast everyday of the week. I would genuinely but I'm not quite as exuberant as people always imagine I would be."
