Tom Cruise has shared footage of the moment he broke his ankle while filming the new Mission: Impossible film.
Despite the film not being released until July, the actor dropped into The Graham Norton Show alongside co-stars Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg and Henry Cavill to discuss the sixth instalment of the blockbuster spy franchise where he revealed in detail the accident which occurred during a rooftop chase stunt filmed in London.
“I was chasing Henry and was meant to hit the side of the wall and pull myself over but the mistake was my foot hitting the wall,” he explained. “I knew instantly my ankle was broken and I really didn’t want to do it again so just got up and carried on with the take. I said, ‘It’s broken. That’s a wrap. Take me to hospital’ and then everyone got on the phone and made their vacation arrangement.”

The title of the new Mission: Impossible film was this week revealed to be Fallout. Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, it’ll be the first since 2015’s Rogue Nation.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout also stars Angela Bassett, Alec Baldwin, Vanessa Kirby and franchise stalwart Ving Rhames.

Cruise also used his appearance on the BBC chat show to confirm the return of Michelle Monaghan’s character Julia Meade who first appeared in JJ Abram’s Mission: Impossible III in 2006.
The film will be released in the UK on 27 July.
