    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!

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

  3. A user says:

    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”.
