Sylvester Stallone has found a new slice of action - making bread in a TV advertisement for the bakery Warburtons.

The 68-year-old Hollywood veteran plays The Deliverer in the advertisement for the Bolton-based company.

In his classic boxing movie Rocky, Stallone gets up at the crack of dawn to race up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art to get in shape for his big fight. In the ad, The Expendables star gets up to work as a truck driver, delivering fresh loaves.

Stallone said: "I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Bolton and particularly loved spending time in the bakery.

"Maybe I should have stopped beating up bad guys a long time ago and gone into baking instead."
