Why did Mathew Horne and James Corden fall out?

Both famously known for playing Smithy and Gavin on the BBC show, the pair were also a double act off screens.

In the height of the sitcom’s fame, the pair were often seen attending showbiz parties, premieres and also working on other acting projects together. 

Suddenly, the pair began separating themselves from each other and would barely mention anything about their friendship.

James previously opened up about his friendship with Mathew on the Piers Morgan’s Life stories show, explaining: "We never fell out, it was never that… We had such an intense love for each other.

“If I have one regret it's that we rushed those things. We were riding this amazing wave and when it stops, the people you anchor to are the people you've known the longest."

Mathew declined speaking on the show, but in an interview with The Sunday Post, he explained: "The truth is that there was never any rift and everything is fine.

“James and I have always been friends and we always will be.”
