Sir Tom Jones has reportedly been cast as himself for James Corden's new sitcom Mammals.

The Late Late Show! host recently signed a deal with Amazon Prime Video for the six-episode series.

It is apparently being filmed in London and Cornwall, with locals shocked to see the comedian and the It's Not Unusual singer walking around Millook village.

A source revealed to The Sun : "There is a huge buzz in Cornwall at the moment as word soon spread about James filming his new show.

"Since it doesn't look like Gavin & Stacey will be back for a while, fans are intrigued to see what James has got up his sleeve with this new project."

They continued: "They looked like they were having a great time, which bodes well for the finished project."

Mirror have contacted reps for comment.

Sir Tom has been keeping busy with projects in the last few months.

Not only has he appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside Anne-Marie last month, he also has a sold-out show in September.

The Welshman will be performing at the Cambridge Junction on 14 September.

The concert will be part of the Revive Live Tour – in partnership with The National Lottery and Music Venue Trust.

It hopes to bring back the UK's grassroots live music sector.

Sir Tom Jones said: “Musicians can record in their bedrooms, but they can’t learn to perform in public without a place to play.

"Without that, there is no way you can communicate directly to people.

"It’ll be tough to hone your skills and you’ll never have the thrill of feeling their feedback.

"Without a grassroots music venue, the neighbourhood won’t have a place where people can come together to discover and support new talent.

"So support your local pub, club, gym or church or wherever someone has the guts to bring in some entertainment.

He continued: "It makes all the difference both to budding artists and the community.

"I’m delighted to be able to perform a special show as part of The National Lottery’s Revive Live Tour and to be celebrating the return of live music."
