The Late Late Show with James Corden is preparing for its final bow on CBS, coming April 27, and the list of guests for the finale show is already stacked.

According to Deadline, it's been revealed that Harry Styles and Will Ferrell are the latest additions to the illustrious line-up, seemingly rounding out the celebrity appearances for the night.

Harry, 29, has made frequent appearances on the show prior, first becoming friends when the British singer was on the X Factor back in 2010 and eventually even hosting the show for James.

The rumor mill was rife last week when reports emerged that the show was attempting to round up the boys of One Direction for a reunion following on their previous memorable appearances on the show.

However, the show's official Twitter account quickly disputed that rumor, sharing a photograph of a report with the news and slapping on the sticker "False Alarm."

It read: "Nobody loves the boys more than us … but this story just isn't true. What is true is we've got an absolutely brilliant 2 hour finale planned to celebrate 8 years of #LateLateShow at 10pm on April 27th."

Speaking to CBS Mornings about his late night departure, 44-year-old James explained: "It's such a wonderful job. It's the best eight years of my life. It's given me more than I ever could have dreamt it could be. Who walks away from such a thing?"

He then added: "But the reason to leave is: we're a long way from home, you know, in Los Angeles, and there are people at home who are getting older, and we want our kids to know them and be around them. Anyone who's got kids knows that feeling of just wanting to put down roots in a place where your family might - are gonna be."
