7 filming and takes kids for a ride

TOM Cruise delighted a Warwickshire family as he landed in their back garden in a helicopter while filming Mission: Impossible 7.

The 59-year-old star borrowed Alison Webb’s huge field for the scene and as a thank you left her children completely starstruck.

Hollywood legend Tom and the crew had to use the spacious field as the nearby Coventry Airport was temporarily closed.

Paying thanks, Tom let Alison’s children take a trip in the helicopter and posed for a number of photos with the kids.

Speaking to the BBC, Alison said: “I thought it would be kind of cool for the kids to see the helicopter land in the garden.

“He [Tom Cruise] basically arrived and got out and it was like, ‘Wow’.

“He went straight over to the children for a chat, then came over and elbow bumped us and said thank you very much.”

The mum recalled how meeting Tom was “incredible” and the experience was “surreal”.

Tom has been making his rounds in the UK after he scoffed two chicken dishes at Indian restaurant Asha’s in Birmingham on Saturday.

Owners of the eatery tweeted a photo of Tom outside with staff and wrote: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome Tom Cruise to Asha’s Birmingham yesterday evening.

“Tom ordered our famous Chicken Tikka Masala and enjoyed it so much that as soon as he had finished, he ordered it all over again – the greatest compliment.”

The chicken tikka masala costs £19.45 and is described as: “Tandoori chicken tikka cooked to perfection in chunky tomato and onion gravy.”

Phenomenal photos of filming for Mission: Impossible 7 were also recently released at a disused quarry in the Peak District, Derbyshire. 

Tom, who plays Ethan Hunt in the famous franchise, was reportedly on set as a train was filmed going over the edge of the former Darlton Quarry.   

Production on the film began again at the end of last month, after being paused and delayed multiple times due to the Covid pandemic.
