Britney Spears set for Carpool Karaoke

Britney Spears is to join James Corden on Carpool Karaoke for a drive-along sing-along.

The 34-year-old singer is believed to be the next big star to join the Late Late Show host on the popular segment on his hit US late night television show.

According to the New York Post newspaper, Britney is keen to do the segment to promote her upcoming new album Glory - which is her first LP since 2013's Britney Jean and comes out on August 26.

The Make Me hitmaker will follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber, Adele, Sir Elton John, Stevie Wonder and many more who have been on the ride with the British funnyman and belted out their biggest hits.
