Cruise reportedly grabbed hold of the cameraman, who was wearing a harness, and helped him back onto his feet while shooting a scene last week.

The 58-year-old is expected to visit the Peak District soon, with a spectacular set is taking shape in Stoney Middleton, Derbyshire.

A railway line has been set up at Darlton Quarry there, with the track extending out over the precipitious drop.

Cruise will appear in Mission Impossible 7, which is scheduled to hit cinemas in May 2022, with Hayley Atwell and Simon Pegg.

The Hollywood star has also been seen in Pickering, while a helicopter associated with the film flew over Scarborough.

Location shoots have already taken place in Venice, Rome, Surrey and Norway.

Mission Impossible 7 was originally slated for release in November 2021 but has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Mission Impossible 8 is scheduled for release in July 2023, having originally been set to hit screens in November next year.

Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to Tom Cruise’s much-loved 80s classic, is due to premiere this November.
