The advert then returns to Jonathan’s office who mistakes the gangsters threat as the script to a new film as he quizzes De Niro: How does it end?’

With the silver fox replying a sinister style: ‘Not well.’

Speaking on his latest role, that marks the launch of Warburtons new bagels which come in plain and a fruity cinnamon and raisin flavour, the American Hustle star said: ‘It was a pleasure to fly to the UK to film this ad with the Warburtons family, and star alongside Jonathan.’

Jonathan Warburton, Chairman of Warburtons, said of the collaboration with one of Hollywood’s biggest names: ‘As an iconic New Yorker, Robert De Niro knows his way around a bagel so it’s great to have his seal of approval. We’ve spent months perfecting the recipe and process to ensure we delight families up and down the country with the best thing since sliced bread!’
