In it he takes on the role of Bolton born seed salesman Thomas Warburton, a poor man’s Mr Darcy, and seduces a young noblewoman played by Emma Connell.

Against her father’s wishes, he crashes her wedding in the grounds of a stunning estate and takes for his own.

Dressed in 19th century finery, Peter drops in some of his most famous catchphrases from his career including “garlic bread” and “Av it!” – from his iconic John Smith’s ad.

He even has a Poldark moment as he scythes wheat in a field, hilariously ripping open his shirt to reveal a body doubles’ chiselled body.

Earlier this year The Sun revealed the Phoenix Nights star had signed a big money deal with the bakery brand.

The comedian was the ideal choice for Warbutons – who hail from Peter’s hometown – and when he was offered the deal he couldn’t turn it down.

A source told The Sun: “Peter did the John Smith’s adverts but other than that he’s kept his powder dry.

“But he liked what Warburtons were offering, and given he’s a Bolton boy it felt like a good fit.

“It’s also a very healthy payday.”

He takes over from Sylvester Stallone as the leading man of the bakery company.
