Barbara Windsor, an English actress was descended from an Irish Collins – in London, like Corden!
Lots of Irish fled from starvation in Ireland to places like Liverpool and London in the 1800s.
And, like Windsor, he also has blue eyes – not that common in the English!

A completely idiotic remark regarding blue eyes. I have lived in East Anglia and kent in England and a lot of kids there have blonde hair and blue eyes. This gel character is a complete idiot.

He looks completely Northern German … I don’t think he has many Britons in his lineage.

Thats oddly specific.

Another cretin.

He might also have scottish and irish ancestry since many english people on here do.

His mother could have Irish ancestry since her maiden name is “Collins”.

“Collins” is an extremely common English surname. It also exists in Ireland but in far smaller numbers. Any individual named Collins is far likelier to have inherited it from an English ancestor than from an Irish one, especially in this case – Collins is most common in the south-east of England, which is the are Corden hails from.

That’s true, for example Lily Collins:

Collins is actually super common in Ireland but it is one of those names that can have a few different origins.

Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Ó Coileáin and Mac Coileáin (see Cullen 1).English: patronymic from the Middle English personal name Col(l)in, a pet form of Coll, itself a short form of Nicholas.Americanized form of French Colin.

In Ireland, Collins is a genuinely indigenous Irish name; in fact, it is one of the most numerous surnames, ranked number 30.
