James Corden danced with Los Angeles Lakers cheerleaders in front of 19,000 screaming fans to win a competition on Wednesday’s episode of Game On! on CBS.

As a member of the show’s Team Gronk, he was joined by leader Rob Gronkowski, 31, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player who also added his own twist to the routine.

The two of them were competing for glory against Venus Williams, 39, who danced with confidence alongside stand-up comedian Ian Karmel, 35.

Team Venus went first, and seemed to have all the right moves, with its tennis star leader boasting that she was born to be onstage at the Staples Center.

But when James, 41, and Rob hit the floor, the crowd was solidly theirs, charmed by their great commitment to the steps and their devil-may-care attitude, which earned them the win.

James and Rob looked lovingly at each other afterward as James told the NFL star, ‘I’ll never forget tonight.’

The Late Late Show host was praised by the Lakers’ entertainment director for his ‘swagger and confidence’ and he admitted that he and Rob bonded during the experience.

‘We became one organism whose only purpose was to bring joy through dance,’ James recalled. ‘And you felt it in the arena… I saw [Jack Nicholson] turn to his friend and say, ”I’ve never been in a movie that’s as good as this”.’

Ian teased James that his act was so good, Lakers player LeBron James’ hairline came down two inches just watching them, joking, ‘It made him feel young again.’

‘Anthony Davis’ eyebrow separated as he watched it!’ James returned, laughing hysterically as he considered the bushy-browed Lakers athlete, 27.

James was joined on the show by fellow guest star Landon Donovan, 38, a former member of the Los Angeles Galaxy soccer team and manager of San Diego Loyal Soccer Club.

Team Gronk was filled out by the hapless and hilarious comic Bobby Lee, 48.

At the start of the show, James was asked what would be a fair punishment for Team Venus if they lost, and said, ‘Just to know that they lost to me and Bobby Lee is probably punishment enough.’

To connect the dots between James and his team leader, the show’s host, Keegan-Michael Key, 49, observed that Rob once played football in London.

‘That is correct,’ Rob said in what he called his ‘London’ accent. ‘And we actually called it soccer when we were there. And I actually had two touchdowns when I was there.’

Bobby laughed at Rob’s terrible British accent, and James asked him, ‘Is that how I sound to you?’

‘I was there for two days, and I picked this up,’ Rob said, sounding more Bronx than Brit.

‘Just so you know, you didn’t pick it up,’ James told him. ‘You’ve got to stop. It’s the worst. 

In round one, the teams faced off with a game called ‘Alley-Oop,’ which saw Bobby and Landon trying to sink basketballs in a net while being dangled in mid-air.

Bobby easily sunk three baskets while Landon got zero, giving the first win to Team Gronk.

In the second round, teams were asked which of three athletes cried the longest in public.

Team Gronk correctly guessed it was former Green Bay Packers star Brett Favre, 50, who wept for 10 minutes at a press conference, followed by golfer Bubba Watson, 41, and tennis player Roger Federer, 38.

‘Roger cries every match,’ Venus affirmed, adding that she’d never shed a tear on the court. ‘It’s a tennis match. Read my lips: It’s a tennis match.’

Landon said he’d once cried in a soccer match, and had ‘asked [show] producers to pull the clip, but they said ”We couldn’t afford it, because we had to pay James to be here today”.’

Rob said he cried when he retired, as reporters asked him about his career, and father-of-three James confessed that he cried ‘at the drop of a hat, when my kids do anything.’

Every match: 'Roger cries every match,' Venus Williams affirmed of Swiss champion Federer, adding that she'd never shed a tear on the court. 'It's a tennis match. Read my lips: It's a tennis match'

For their third challenge, Rob competed against Venus and Ian in the Laker Girls dance battle, with each team facing off at halftime during a Lakers home game. 

They easily won their set, dancing with great commitment to Stay by Zedd and Alessia Cara.

‘I appreciate your support,’ James told boxer Floyd Mayweather, 43, who rushed the court afterward.

For round four, the teams had to guess which of three athletes—former NBA stars Shaquille O’Neal, 48, and Ron Artest, aka Metta World Peace, 40, and wrestler John Cena, 43—had the highest-charting rap album on the Billboard 200 list.

Landon said that he’d listened to all kinds of music early on in his career, but once David Beckham, 45, joined the Los Angeles Galaxy, ‘it was only Spice Girls.  

Team Venus won, guessing that Shaquille charted highest, and John was next. Ron didn’t chart.

The final challenge saw the team leaders each climb up to a platform high above the show’s stage, then cross to another platform while the opposite team tried to answer a larger number of questions.

Keegan-Michael asked James if he wished he could be the one to climb for his team.

‘I’m devastated,’ James said. ‘It’s been a life’s dream of mine to be hoisted that high in the air, and to scale a 10-foot floating platform in return for points on a show where I don’t really know what the prize is.’

Rob crossed himself as he made the terrifying jump, calling it ‘the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life.’

Venus screamed the whole way across, saying, ‘I can’t feel my legs.’

In the end, Team Gronk outpaced Team Venus, and won the whole show, 18 points to 11.

Because they lost, all three members of Team Venus had to take freezing cold ice baths.

‘Oh my God, this sucks so bad,’ Ian yelled before dunking himself completely below the surface.

Game On! will return next week on CBS.

Last month, Alisha revealed how she and Glenn kept their romance under wraps before the hit show aired.   

Penning a lengthy post on Instagram the blonde bombshell said that she and Glenn, ‘got lucky’ that they could keep things on the down low. 

Alisha said that it wasn’t just because they tried hard to keep things a secret, but said it’s because a lot of people didn’t recognise Glenn from his season of The Bachelorette

'We got lucky!' Bachelor In Paradise's Alisha Aitken-Radburn revealed on Tuesday, how she and Glenn Smith managed to keep their relationship 'hidden' before the show aired

‘Lots of messages about how we stayed ”hidden” but have clearly done a bunch of stuff,’ Alisha said.

‘I guess we just got lucky, @glennsmith87 wasn’t SUPER recognisable from his season of Bachelorette (sorry babe) and you may or may not be surprised how fast people forget old cast of shows once new ones are airing.’ 

She went on to say that most people who recognised her didn’t ‘put two and two together’ that she was dating a fellow reality star.

Spilling the beans! ‘I guess we just got lucky, @glennsmith87 wasn’t SUPER recognisable from his season of Bachelorette (sorry babe) and you may or may not be surprised how fast people forget old cast of shows once new ones are airing,’ she said

‘That doesn’t mean we weren’t nervous, we were nervous literally all the time but we also couldn’t resist spending a full day drinking cocktails on a daybed at Finns (sorry Warner Brothers).’

Finns is a beach club in Bali. The pair holidayed there together in February. 

The blonde beauty accompanied the post with a sweet picture featuring her and Glenn enjoying a beer while on a holiday in the tropical paradise. 

Alisha looked casual chic in a pair of denim shorts and a navy top as she cuddled up to Glenn on the beach.

Kanye’s concerning post came after his latest Twitter rant which got him suspended for 24 hours by the microblogging site earlier this week.

He had shared a video of himself urinating on one of his Grammy Awards and posted a string of messages about his battle with record labels Universal and Sony – including screenshots of his contracts with the former.   

On Wednesday, Twitter removed one post featuring the phone number of Forbes’ Chief Content Officer, Randall Lane. 

Once the suspension was lifted, the rapper was tweeting again on Thursday, taking aim at the music industry and calling on artists to unite to change the system.

Meanwhile, Kanye is still getting support from wife Kim Kardashian as they try to work through their marriage issues amid concerns for his mental health.

‘Kim is holding onto her marriage with Kanye and knows that he bipolar and struggling with his mental health and wants to be there for him and help.’ a source told US Weekly.

The Keeping With The Kardashians star knows and is aware that her husband struggles with his mental health, so she wants him to know she is doing her best to empathize.

‘She is continuing to support him and does her best to understand him and where he is coming from. She knows he is unconventional and has always known that.’

Kanye first acknowledged his bipolar disorder in 2018, a condition that is associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from depressive lows to manic highs and can be controlled with medication.

Kim hinted last month that his struggle with bipolar was to blame for his recent erratic behavior, that has seen him embark on the unlikely bid for presidency and get emotional at his first campaign rally in South Carolina while discussing abortion.

Two months ago, the Runaway hitmaker ruthlessly lambasted Kim and her famous family on Twitter.

During the aggressive tirade, Kanye alleged that Kim was trying to ‘bring a doctor to lock [him] up’ and compared her mother Kris Jenner to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

He even admitted to his followers that he had been trying to divorce Kim for two years.

Kanye later apologized to his online audience and to Kim for the out of line tweets and he has since left talk of his marriage off social media.

Kanye and Kim wed in 2014 and share four children together, daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one.

She sustained a stress fracture on her left foot during training for the upcoming virtual London Marathon. 

And Jenni Falconer put on a stylish display as she departed Global Radio studios after hosting her Smooth Radio show in London on Friday. 

The radio host, 44, looked sensational in an asymmetrical white dress that had a colourful print and a plunging neckline.

Jenni added a chic touch to her look by slipping on a beige jacket that perfectly complemented her stylish ensemble.

She added a glittering touch to her look by accessorising with a silver pendant necklace, while she kept her personal items in a grey handbag. 

The presenter styled her golden locks into a sleek, straight style, and she used a light palette of make-up for the occasion. 

Jenni wore comfortable white trainers, a sensible choice given that she is required to wear the walker boot to allow her injury to heal.

On Monday, the broadcaster revealed to MailOnline that her injury has now forced her to abandon plans to take part in the virtual London Marathon.

She said: ‘A few weeks ago I sustained a stress fracture on my 3rd metatarsal. Frustratingly it’s very hard to spot on an X-ray and so it took quite a while to diagnose.

‘Anyway, it happened six weeks ago and thankfully it is repairing well so I have to wear a support boot whilst I’m walking around to limit further damage until it fully mends.

‘It was a consequence of excessive running in lockdown whilst preparing for the virtual London marathon. 

‘Sadly it means I can no longer run on October 4th but should be back running home from work in a month!’

Away from radio, it was recently announced that the health conscious star is the face and voice of newly launched fitness app Start 2 Run.

The app is ideal for people who need help getting started running as well as people who want to up their running mileage or aim for a particular running distance goal.

Users will have Jenni with them for all their training sessions, encouraging and motivating, as well as providing tips and pointers.
