Stallone is even due make an appearance to do a spot of baking at the bread factory in Wakefield, Yorkshire, and has apparently hired a stunt double who worked alongside him on The Expendables.

Sly is set to run up a flight of steps while holding a loaf of bread in each hand, The Sun reports.

A source told the paper: "The bosses at Warburtons have signed a real top-drawer name in Stallone. Sly doesn't come cheap and he isn't an obvious choice to promote bread - but he is bound to get people talking.

"They're sure the investment will be worth it."
