Phillip Schofield reveals Tom Cruise ’caused absolute chaos’ after deciding to walk through Windsor

Tom Cruise caused chaos when he decided to ignore protocol and walk through Windsor on Sunday.

The Hollywood star was taking part in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebration at Home Park in the historic UK town, but instead of being driven he opted for a stroll and was mobbed by fans.

Phillip Schofield, who hosted the ITV coverage of the celebrations on Sunday, called Tom ‘a class act’ but admitted there were chaotic scenes.

Speaking to his This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby on Monday morning, Phil explained of Tom’s antics: ‘He caused absolute chaos in Windsor because he decided to walk to the studio.

‘So the police then obviously had to do serious crowd control at the drop of a hat, but he met everybody.’

Phillip went on to call him ‘the most delightful man’, saying: ‘When he did our interview he then went downstairs and met everybody, went into rooms to meet people and made proper eye contact. He is a class act.’

The excited ITV star even managed a selfie with his new pal, which he promptly posted on Instagram.

He looked dapper in an all navy ensemble and flashed his famous smile, while finding himself surrounded by eager devotees as he made his way into Windsor’s annual horse show, the venue for Sunday’s celebration.

The Mission Impossible actor looked stylish in a dark navy sports jacket which he layered over a figure hugging V-neck T-shirt. 

The action star also wore slim fitting jeans, slipping his feet into a pair of tawny lace up boots.

Tom wore his salt and pepper locks in a relaxed style, slicked back from his handsome face. 

The proud scientologist was escorted through the crowd by security, as he fist bumped and waved to the thralls of waiting fans.

Hours later, Tom, whose long-awaited film Top Gun: Maverick is hitting cinemas at the end of this month, was slammed online for ‘plugging’ his forthcoming feature during the special evening – which was played out on ITV. 

The 59-year-old American film star, whose net worth is thought to be a cool £490.2million, sat down for an interview with Phil and Julie Etchingham during the celebratory evening, but was soon at the heart of Twitter discussion after speaking of his upcoming film at length. 

Top Gun: Maverick is the anticipated sequel to the 1986 original Top Gun, with its release initially slated for July 12, 2019, before complex flight sequences, the Covid pandemic and scheduling conflicts pushed it back to 2022.

‘Every film I make is important, but this one, people have been asking for decades. For decades I’ve been thinking “what could I do?”‘, the Hollywood icon explained to Phillip, 60, and Julie, 52. 

The production of the new instalment was ’emotional’ for Tom, but taking the step to create a sequel to the commercial hit was ‘for the fans.’ 

While the actor did speak highly of the monarch, ITV viewers were not impressed that more emphasis was placed on his latest career venture.

‘Why has Tom Cruise just promoted his new film?’ one tweet read. 

Another viewer penned: ‘So you think if #TomCruise didn’t have a big film release, would he have appeared here for #platinumjubilee ??’ 

A third sarcastic tweet read: ‘Thought it was the Queen’s Jubilee not an opportunity for Tom Cruise to promote himself’.
