He's been filming the Paul Potts biopic in Italy all week and on Wednesday, it was finally time for James Corden to sing.

The Gavin & Stacey star was spotted serenading his Italian co-star Valeria Bilello in a gondola as they cruised through the canals of Venice.

Wearing false crooked teeth to look like the Britain's Got Talent winner, James sang his heart out clutching a song book as he sat next to Valeria.

After the gondola scenes, James and Valeria were spotted running through the city's famous Piazza San Marco before cosying up for an on-screen clinch.

Although Valeria is playing a love interest of Paul, it's not clear which character she's playing.

Welsh actress Alexandra Roach will play
Pott's wife Julie-Ann, who the singer met on the internet in 2001 and
wed two years later.

James has been in Italy since the weekend to film One Chance, which tells the story of tenor Paul's rise to fame.

Weinstein's film company is producing the film about the former Carphone Warehouse salesman, who leaped to fame when he won the first series of BGT in 2007.

The Billy Elliot-style story will tell how Gloucestershire-born Potts turned to singing when he was bullied at school.
