James teamed the tailored ensemble with a crisp white dress shirt, a navy blue tie and black leather boots.

The sighting comes after a report last month suggested James could surpass Ant and Dec as the UK’s highest earning TV star, with his potential £7.5million annual income topping the duo’s £6.6million for their stints on ITV. 

James’ deal with television network CBS expires next year, after six years of being the acclaimed host of The Late Late Show.

However, according to reports in The Sun, industry sources are keen to keep the A-lister on board as the face of the talk show.

An LA TV insider said: ‘CBS has no plan B, James is their guy and who they see staying with them.

‘He is one of the faces of the network, he fronts a massively successful show and drives lots of traffic to them online. The figures that are being discussed are around £15million for two years.’

MailOnline contacted representatives for James and CBS for comment at the time.
