'NOOOO!': Celine Dion freaks out as James Corden gives away her shoes on Carpool Karoake

Celine Dion was left shaken and “needing alcohol” after James Corden gave away several pairs of her beloved shoes during Monday night’s Carpool Karaoke instalment.

The 51-year-old joined Corden in his car as they navigated Las Vegas, with the The Late Late Show with James Corden host admitting he needed some help to find his way around Sin City. After belting out a selection of Dion’s most famous songs, including It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, the British comic turned the conversation to the star’s famous shoe collection — asking her just how many pairs she had.

“Three thousand, five thousand…” Dion muttered.

Corden then interjected he’d heard she has 10,000 pairs, and the music legend acknowledged the rumour was probably true.

Corden then announced he’d been in touch with Dion’s assistants, who had decided she needed to cull her shoe collection, and had several pairs in the car to give away to people on the Las Vegas strip.

Looking panicked, Dion exclaimed: “Where do you want me to give some shoes? Now?” First up was a pair of white boots, with Corden rolling down the window and asking a couple walking along, “Excuse me, do you want a pair of Celine Dion’s shoes?”

The pair quickly said yes, but Dion was less than excited about handing over the heels, screaming and gripping them tightly before eventually passing them over. As they drove away from the scene, Dion screamed “Noooo!” as the window rolled up, before admitting: “I need alcohol!”

Other shoes to be handed over to surprised fans included a pair of orange heels and a pair of navy suede court shoes, which one man declined before Dion and Corden found their new owner.

Elsewhere in the episode, Dion proved her musical prowess as she turned her talent to making popular children’s song Baby Shark dramatic, before she and Corden concluded their time together by recreating the famous Titanic moment by singing My Heart Will Go On on the bow of a boat moored on the Bellagio lake.
