James had told the Associated Press: 'We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled.

'We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don't think there's any other way we could deal with it. It's a tragedy.'  

Chester, 41, hanged himself from a bedroom door in his home near Los Angeles last month. His death was ruled a suicide.

The statement came as excitement around the revamped series reached fever pitch as host James, 38, handed over the baton for the launch party for Apple Music's Carpool Karaoke: The Series in West Hollywood on Monday night.

James posed with his pregnant wife Julia, 38 - who he is expecting baby number three with - and couldn't have looked prouder as she showed off the beginnings of her baby bump.

Julia opted for a blue chiffon Erdem dress, which fell to her knee and skimmed over her blossoming tum, and paired the look with some black court heels.

James displayed his trim physique in a pair of straight cut jeans, black T-shirt and trendy blue leather jacket.

Julia announced that she was expecting for a third time last month, adding to their brood of two; son Max, six, and daughter Carey, two. The happy couple married in 2012.

Appearing on the series in 2017, Harry Styles also had a hilarious feature, crooning his hit Sign Of The Times before re-enacting famous romantic scenes with the former Gavin and Stacey star.
