The Brit comic - who hosts ‘The Late, Late Show’ across the pond - presented the ‘Mom’ star with the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series at the gala in L.A., and she showed her gratitude by passionately locking lips with him.

James welcomed the embrace after hailing Allison - who plays Bonnie Plunkett on the US sitcom - "one of the greatest actresses [he's] ever met”.

The audience at the Beverly Hilton venue cheered the pair on, and Allison later took a few moments to regain her composure, before returning the compliment to James.

"You're one of my favourite comics on the planet," she said, as he cowered in faux embarrassment.

James’ snog will have made up for the disappointment of losing out on winning Best Talk Show to Jon Stewart’s ‘The Daily Show’ during the evening’s proceedings.
