James Corden has revealed that he was bullied as a schoolboy after word got round that his middle name is Kimberly.

The 31-year-old Gavin And Stacey star said the unusual moniker has been passed down the generations.

He told the latest issue of Heat magazine: "Literally every man in my family has it - it's a tradition. "For ages I pretended it was Karl, but my sister was going out with one of my mates and told him, then he told the whole school. It wasn't great."

But the comic actor and writer learned how to deflect teasing as a youngster by making people laugh.

He said: "I realised quite early that, being this little chubby lad, I was a target for the lads in the older years.

"But I found that if you just made them laugh, they'd accept you. I probably used the same tactics then as I do now - that's the sad thing!"
