    It held up traffic at the Horns Bridge roundabout during rush hour until the vehicle was freed.

    It is the latest setback to hit the highly-anticipated thriller which has suffered a number of bumps during filming due to the Covid pandemic.

    The film was believed to have wrapped up earlier this month but the actors are remaining in the UK to do the final touches for the shoot which has taken well over a year.

    To add to the disruption, Cruise and his costar in the film, Hayley Atwell, have reportedly ended their romance.

    An insider told The Sun on Friday: ‘It has been a very intense period of filming together. They really got on well – but as the latest film winds down they’ve decided to go back to being friends.

    ‘Their filming schedules are very full-on, and Tom has a number of other commitments coming up and is always shooting around by private helicopter and jet so it just ran its course.

    ‘But they’re still happy to work together. It’s a shame, but just one of those things. They still get on well.’

    MailOnline contacted both Tom and Hayley’s representatives for comment at the time.

    The couple have been pictured in character on set and on location as they shoot the seventh instalment in the Mission: Impossible franchise – often seen in tense action sequences together.

    They turned up to Wimbledon’s 12th day on July 10, both smiling, sitting together in the VIP box and enjoying the tennis.

    Since then, they have been pictured in Birmingham, filming scenes for the high-octane films, gladly greeting fans.

    The duo were at Birmingham’s Bullring & Grand Central shopping centre in August, after Mission: Impossible 7 filming was paused and delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    Tom, who plays Ethan Hunt in the famous franchise, and Hayley, who portrays a character mononymously known as Grace, have spent much of the last year shooting the movie across the UK, as well as in Rome, Venice, and Norway.

    They were said to have become ‘fairly inseparable’ after they ‘hit it off from day one’ on the film.

    Tom hasn’t had a high-profile romance since his divorce from ex-wife Katie Holmes in 2012 while Hayley was said to have split from her English doctor ex at some point in 2020. Tom shares daughter Suri, 15, with Katie.

    A source told The Sun last December: ‘Tom and Hayley hit it off from day one. Lockdown, and all the difficulties that came with it, brought them even closer and they’ve become fairly inseparable.

    ‘They’ve been meeting up after hours, and she’s been to his London pad. They get on brilliantly, and both seem very happy.’ 

    Prior to his marriage to Katie, Tom was married to Nicole Kidman from 1990 to 2001. After their split, he retained custody of their two adopted children Connor, 26, and Isabella, 28, who had been raised in the Church of Scientology.

    The Top Gun actor’s first marriage was to Mimi Rogers; they tied the knot in 1987 and split in 1990.  

    Tom is said to have first became involved in the Church Of Scientology through Mimi and has since been one of the religion’s most outspoken advocates.

    In 2019, the actor was reported to be dating The Handmaid’s Tale star and fellow Scientologist Elisabeth Moss. 

    Although Elisabeth, 39, shut down any romance rumours last year on Watch What Happens Live and admitted she was ‘confused’ over the reports, especially after it was claimed that they were ‘engaged’.

    She said: ‘I actually was confused and also mainly got texts from people being like, ‘I didn’t know, why didn’t you tell me?’ And just confusion from my friends, but mainly poking fun at it ’cause obviously they knew it wasn’t true.’

    Mission: Impossible 7 is set to be released on May 27, 2022.
