THE Late Late Show host James Corden looks real groovy as he spoofs the Sixties with some seriously hippy hair extensions.
The funnyman dressed up as fictional piano player Gary Thump – complete with comedy moustache – in a sketch where he’s seen talking to The Beatles.
James was on his popular American chat show taking the mickey out of director Peter Jackson’s Get Back documentary, which looks at the creation of the Beatles’ legendary album, Let it Be.
As Thump, the Gavin & Stacey star mixed his new footage with the behind-the-scenes moments that feature in the epic documentary.
It sees him telling The Beatles how poor their tunes are and deciding to showcase some of his own tracks – including one with John Lennon's wife, Yoko Ono.
That sees him get locked out of the studio and barred from ever returning.
I bet enraged Beatles purists would think he deserves even greater punishment.
But I just think it’s hilarious.

RICK AND CO…THE SEQUEL
IT was one of the most iconic, and short-lived sitcoms of the Eighties. Now it has been revealed that The Young Ones could have carried on . . . albeit reinvented as The Middle-Aged Ones.
The anarchic BBC2 show ran from 1982 to 1984, led by Nigel Planer as hippy Neil, the late Rik Mayall as volatile Rick and Adrian Edmonson as heavy metal punk Vyvyan.
Now one of the show’s creators has revealed they had plans to continue the story.
In the latest podcast from Alexei Sayle, who also starred on the show, one of the writers, Lise Mayer, said: “I always had the idea of doing The Middle-Aged Ones.
“Neil would have cut his hair and be wearing a suit. Vyvyan would be on his third marriage and work in a hospital and still drink too much.
The only reason why we didn’t do a third series is because Rik had this romantic notion that we were Fawlty Towers and that we had to do two series and get out.
“But I think we had a lot more we could have done.”
I reckon Rik was spot on.
OLIVIA’S DOGGED DEVOTION
SHE has played two queens and now a killer in new Sky Atlantic drama, Landscapers.
But Olivia Colman says the role taking up most of her time is playing nursemaid to her dog called Alfred Lord Wagyson.
The Crown star’s pet pooch has been diagnosed with diabetes, which means the actor has to give him insulin to keep his blood sugar levels in check.
Which hasn’t been easy as she’s also promoting true crime thriller Landscapers, which sees her play housewife-turned-murderer, Susan Edwards.
Olivia said: “Now we have to give him injections twice a day, but he’s such a brave, good boy. It’s in the scruff of the neck where they don’t feel it. He doesn’t show it. He might be going, ‘Oh, God.’ But he’s being very brave and now he’s all bright and sparky again.”
The dog-lover says she is so obsessed with canines she would consider them for a career should the acting ever dry up.
Olivia said: “I could be a dog walker. I’m also very good now at injecting dogs with insulin but only if they need it – not just any old random dog.”
I don’t think she needs a career plan B just yet.
