Late Late Show host James Corden is “in line” to replace Ellen Degeneres the Sun newspaper is reporting — despite other signs that she’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

Corden “could be the shock winner after dozens of employees accused the $50 million-a-year presenter of turning a blind eye to racism, bullying and sexual harassment on her hit daytime show,” the paper said.

It cited as its source “insiders” who claim Corden, 41, has long been seen as Degeneres’ “long term successor,” even pre-scandal — and only more so now.

Still, the Post reported Saturday that Degeneres is going back to work this month, as stated in an internal email from the show’s own executive producers.
