Tom Cruise forced to call security to tackle intruders on the set of Mission Impossible 7

AS leading agent Ethan Hunt in the Mission: Impossible movie franchise, actor Tom Cruise is an old hand at catching baddies.

But he is having no luck when it comes to intruders breaking into the set of the seventh film, which he is working on in Yorkshire.

Tom and his crew created a huge set inside a vast quarry, where they have spent days filming death-defying stunts.

But they have been plagued with thrill-seekers trying to climb the structures.

A film insider said: “The set is so large and open that it has been impossible to close it all off.

“So trespassers have been getting in and attempting to scale the rigs and equipment set up for the stunts.

“It is a health-and-safety nightmare.

“Police were called to one incident last week and then Tom was forced to take action when it happened again.

“This time two intruders were spotted clambering up the set, leading to security rushing to get them down.

“The set looks exciting and these people think it’s funny trying to get pictures of themselves there, but they don’t realise how dangerous it is.

“Extra security might have to be drafted in.

“Along with it being a safety nightmare, Tom and the team don’t want any delays to filming.”

Production on Mission: Impossible 7 has been plagued by setbacks, with the release date pushed back ten months to next May.

When the clapperboard finally comes down, Tom is going to need a very long holiday to recover from the stress.


‘MISERABLE CAREER’

WONDER Woman actress Gal Gadot has claimed Justice League director Joss Whedon threatened her career after she tried to alter her character.

She said: “He told me he’ll make sure my career will be miserable.”

LUKE WHO’S TALKING

TONIGHT I will be getting into the ring with boxing champ Luke Campbell as he kickstarts his campaign with mental health charity Mind.

Luckily for me, our match is a virtual one – I’ve not had to swap my Amstel for ab crunches just yet – and it will take place at 6pm live on Luke’s Instagram.

Also involved in the campaign – dubbed The Hardest Fight – are former England footballer Wayne Bridge and McFly singer Danny Jones.

Luke, myself and the others will speak frankly about our own struggles – and why it is so important to talk if you are not having a good time of it.

Luke, who sadly lost his dad to cancer in 2017, says he was inspired to speak out after bottling up his emotions left him in a bad place.

He told me: “I was one of the lucky ones.

“When you look at 18 people every day losing their lives because of suicide, it’s shocking. And it’s something you worry is only going to get worse after the year we’ve had.”

Please join us if you can. It will be well worth your time.

A LOTTIE ON SHOW

KATE Moss's little sister gave people a Lott to look at as she hit the town with pals.

Model Lottie wore this halter neck white top with a cutout at the front for a meal in London.

Given the weather recently, I’m amazed she didn’t catch a cold.

Thirlwall’s problems

IF Jade Thirlwall ever marries her Rizzle Kicks boyfriend Jordan Stephens, she might want to avoid taking his surname. He is planning to change it – for a string of numbers.

Jordan said: “I love people who change their names as their lives evolve. It’s a very exciting prospect.

“I’ve been thinking about changing my last name. I want to change it to something wild. I was wondering if you could just do numbers.”

Jade and her Little Mix bandmates released their single Confetti last month but Jordan said he is a fan from way back.

During an Instagram Live, he said of Jade: “What a wonderful woman. I’ll tell you guys what my favourite is from them – it’s controversial. I’m a big fan of the second album, Salute.”

NOT PETE PERFECT

HIS little black book of ex-lovers reads like a Hollywood movie script. And now Pete Davidson has revealed just how he has managed to seduce so many stunning women, including Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale.

But the methods used by the American comedian, who is now dating British Bridgerton actress Phoebe Dynevor, are a little unconventional to say the least.

Pete said: “I am just very, very honest. What a lot of people do is they try to put on a version of themselves they would like to be. Eventually, that will unravel.

“Just off the top, I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m nuts. Here’s all my issues. Here’s what I do. Here’s the therapist. This is what happens’. That could either be a lot for someone or they could be like, ‘Cool, that’s refreshingly honest’. Sometimes it can be a little intense and people can’t handle that stuff.”

You don’t say, Pete. He also said on US radio station Breakfast Club Power that he refuses to play games, adding: “It just creates this whole anxiety and a lot of stress, and there’s enough of that going on. Communication is key.”
Phoebe and Pete have been dating most of the year.

I thought most people would run for the hills if propositioned with a chat-up line that left-field. Maybe it’s where we’ve all been going wrong?

Jack: I’m back with that loving feeling

AFTER years of singing about heartbreak and sadness, Jack Savoretti has revealed his next album is dedicated to love.

The singer – whose most recent record, Singing To Strangers, went straight to No1 in 2019 – has spent the past year at home with his wife, actress Jemma Powell, and their children Connie and Winter.

Jack’s new single Who’s Hurting Who is out now. And he says the experience of being back with his family helped shape his upcoming seventh album.

In an exclusive chat, the singer told me: “This album is a celebration of love. In the past they have been about frustration and sometimes even anger towards love and heartbreak and sadness.

“But this record doesn’t have that. And that is very much due to the fact that, with all the terrible circumstances that have happened over the past year, I was able to ‘re-fall’ in love with my life.

"And how fortunate I am, with my children and my wife, to know a part of myself I haven’t known for 15 years because I have been out working.

"I was able to re-engage with the kid inside me. I get love now more than ever. I still don’t know what love means but I understand it much more now.”
