The Indiana Jones icon was seen fixing his red Colnago bike frame, with prices for the bikes going up to at least £12,000, with Continental Grand Prix 4 Season Tyres before his ride.

It comes after Harrison looked on fine form as he soaked up the sun while taking in the sights of Newcastle Quayside during a break from filming on Wednesday.

The Hollywood actor showed off his muscular frame in a tight grey T-shirt as strolled around with his bodyguard, with the two grabbing a cup of coffee before searching for someplace to eat.

Harrison has been making the most of his coastal surroundings and on Tuesday he enjoyed a bike ride from Newcastle to The Ship’s Cat restaurant in North Shields. 

The film legend made a surprise appearance at the eatery, where he is said to have ordered the £17.95 sea bass, along with an £11.50 bowl of mussels.

Diners were pleasantly surprised to see the four-time Golden Globe nominee at the restaurant, with The Ships’ Cat own Facebook page penning: ‘Imagine sitting here enjoying your coffee then you look over and it’s…. Indiana Jones! 

‘What an honour to have Harrison Ford join us today on the decking here at the Ship’s Cat! You are welcome back anytime. What a legend!’

The diner wasn’t the only local spot Harrison has visited, as the day before he also delighted the staff at Sigma Sports bicycle shop at Hampton Wick.

Describing the encounter in an Instagram post, a staff member wrote: ‘Over the years we have been very lucky to have had our fair share of legends from the world of pro cycling and some of the best triathletes in the world swing by our Hampton Wick store.​

‘​Up to now though, visits from college professors of archaeology who aren’t shy when it comes to running from boulders and defeating villains to help save the world have been few and far between.​

‘​That though is until we were paid a visit from a certain Mr Harrison Ford. It was an absolute pleasure to welcome the acclaimed actor and director into our store and yes, we are still pinching ourselves!’

Making the most of it: Harrison has been enjoying the sights of the north of England during filming

Harrison has also been spending down time in South Shields prior to reprising the franchise’s titular lead role. 

He is known for his age-defying fitness – allowing him to front the action franchise for a fifth outing.

Filming: While it’s not known what the precise premise of the film is, the historic settings being used in the North of England appear to be creating a creepy, eerie feel to the movie. Added to this, Bamburgh Castle is said to be haunted by a ghost

‘Spooked’: The Sun reported last week that the movie crew are ‘spooked’ by the famed Pink Lady said to roam the location

The castle was a buzz of activity the evening before, with cranes and trucks transporting equipment and props to the historic landmark. 

While it’s not known what the precise premise of the film is, the historic settings being used in the North of England appear to be creating a creepy, eerie feel to the movie. Added to this, Bamburgh Castle is said to be haunted by a ghost. 

The Sun reported last week that the movie crew are ‘spooked’ by the famed Pink Lady said to roam the location.

According to the publication, the crew is worried about the spectre from the Middle Ages who roams the halls. 

Insider: ‘It sounds silly but before filming even starts, all any of us are talking about is the ghost. It’s a seriously creepy place,’ an insider told the site

‘It sounds silly but before filming even starts, all any of us are talking about is the ghost. It’s a seriously creepy place,’ an insider told the site.

‘A surprising number of the crew really believe in this stuff and it’s rattled everyone. A number of the team are reluctant to even go into the oldest part of the castle, it’s really shaken them up… 

‘The team will have to overcome it, even if some of them want to avoid certain places.’  

The Star Wars vet was spotted near Pinewood Studios – a British film and television studio located in the village of Iver Heath in Buckinghamshire – a few days ago.

 

Tasty treats ahead: The Ship’s Cat is located on Tanners’ Bank in North Shields and serves an array of seafood items 

RAIDERS OF THE LOST APPETITE! WHAT HARRISON COULD’VE TUCKED INTO 

While Harrison is said to have enjoyed the £17.95 sea bass and £11.50 bowl of mussels, there was plenty more on offer at The Ship’s Cat bar and eatery.

Other highlights on the menu include:

Steak & chips for £18.95 

Jungle fish curry for £15.95

Sunny goats cheese salad £8.95

Fish finger butty for £8.25

Vegan pizza for £8.95 

 Meat platter for £26.95

Resident Delphine Gale said the arrival of Ford into the sleepy village had created a ‘fantastic vibe’ in the area.

She said: ‘After the year we’ve had, to have the excitement of Hollywood coming to the village has really cheered us all up.’  

This comes after production got underway over the weekend on the North Yorkshire Moors in the dead of night earlier this week.

A stuntman was seen, surrounded by a film crew and hefty equipment, in order to shoot a motorcycle sequence.

Though very dark and misty, the stuntman appeared to be brandishing a face mask resembling Harrison, who plays the titular lead role.

Historic: Bamburgh Castle, where filming is taking place, is said to be haunted by a ghost 

On your bike! Vintage motorcycles were taken to the location for what are presumed to be for flashback scenes

The scene was shot in the early hours in Pickering – but the stunt went a little awry when the motorcyclist came tumbling off.

The head-mask flew off in the incident, with one of the crew having to retrieve it.

The on-set first aid team was called over to check out the stunt rider. While it appeared he was unharmed, filming was paused due to damage caused to the motorbike.

According to a witness, one of the crew was heard saying that the production is already a day behind schedule, following a lengthy hold up thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This will be Harrison’s fifth time reprising the title role of the heroic archaeologist with supporting parts going to Mads Mikkelsen, 55, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 35.

A stretch of the North Yorkshire Moors railway has been transformed for the film too.

Crew members of the 2022 blockbuster could be seen on Friday working near a steam train which had been transformed into a Nazi carrier engine.

Filming will begin on the same stretch of track used only a few weeks ago by Tom Cruise for Mission: Impossible 7.

A glimpse at the props being set-up showed a black steam train which had been transformed into a Nazi carrier engine and vintage cars. 

A swastika insignia had been attached to the side of the steam engine, as well as onto a wooden pallet and onto the side of a green passenger carriage. 

Heavy artillery: Tanks were seen being driven up the hill to the castle recently 

A number of props were also being positioned by crew members onto open-topped carriages to give the impression that the steam engine was transporting goods for the Nazis in the film. Additionally, a number of vintage vehicles were also spotted parked on a field nearby. 

A troop-carrying truck, as featured in a number of the other Indiana Jones films was one of the vehicles parked near the train tracks, with crews working to put on the canvas roofing.

Additionally, a vintage motorcycle featuring a sidecar was also among the vehicles – a similar bike featured in the third Indiana Jones instalment. 

James Mangold is directing the movie in place of Steven Spielberg, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thomas Kretschmann are also on board to star.

Plot details are still being kept under wraps, and it’s unclear what roles the new additions will play in the fifth film.

Legendary composer John Williams is also set to return, continuing a musical legacy that began 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Meanwhile, Harrison previously said he wouldn’t make another Indiana Jones movie unless he was sure the production team could ‘kill it.’

Citing the success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he said: ‘I don’t really want to give them what they wanna see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate seeing.

‘The Marvel movies are a spectacular example of a success that worked the other way round – they killed it. We’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we’re in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best.’

Last month Boyd Holbrook and Shaunette Renee Wilson joined the cast of Indiana Jones 5.

Supporting roles: Both Mads Mikkelsen, 55, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 35, L-R have also signed on to appear in Indiana Jones 5 alongside Harrison

The Logan star and the 31-year-old actress will both star in the fifth instalment of the iconic action franchise.

Indiana Jones 5 was first announced in 2016 and originally scheduled to be released in July 2019. 

It was then pushed back a year, before being delayed for another 12 months until July 2021 after Jonathan Kasdan – whose father Lawrence Kasdan wrote 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – was brought on board to work on the script after original screenwriter David Koepp departed the project.

The most recent film in the series was 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which earned over $790.6 million at the global box office.

The current release date for Indiana Jones 5 is July 29, 2022. 

40 years later: Harrison has played the iconic role of Indiana Jones for 40 years, having first starred in Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981

Bradley Cooper is seen for the first time since ex Irina Shayk’s romantic getaway with Kanye West

Bradley Cooper has been seen for the first time since it was revealed that his ex-partner Irina Shayk is dating Kanye West.

The actor, 46, cut a sombre figure as he headed out for a stroll with his daughter Lea, four, in New York after DailyMail.com obtained exclusive pictures showing the model, 35, jetting to France for a romantic break with the rapper, 44.

Bradley and Irina dated for four years before splitting in June 2019, but the pair have remained on good terms and continue to co-parent their daughter together.

Emerging: Bradley Cooper, 46, has been seen for the first time since it was revealed his ex Irina Shayk is dating Kanye West as he stepped out with daughter Lea in New York on Thursday

Dressed in a casual grey t-shirt and lighter jeans, Bradley cradled his young daughter as he headed out and about in the Big Apple.

The Hangover star headed out for a walk in New York following the news that his ex Irina and Kanye were an item.

In exclusive images obtained by DailyMail.com, Kanye can be seen taking a romantic stroll with Irina, 35, in Provence, France, where they are staying at a luxury 600-acre boutique hotel together, named Villa La Coste.

Romantic: The model, 35, was pictured enjoying a break in France with the rapper, 44, following rumours that the pair were dating

Low-key: Bradley was dressed in a casual grey t-shirt and lighter jeans as he stepped out in the Big Apple

Tellingly, the loved-up pair were spotted on Tuesday which happened to be the rapper’s 44th birthday. The same day, Kim, 40, posted a tribute to him on social media, writing: ‘Happy Birthday. Love U for life!’ 

It was also reported on Thursday that Irina and Kanye have already been dating for ‘three months.’

According to TMZ, the pair had spent time together in New York City in late April.

Rumours of the pair’s romance began late last month, with claims that Kanye was ‘secretly’ dating the Russian supermodel, who shares a child with actor Bradley Cooper.

In the pictures, the duo can be seen enjoying their getaway surrounded by the beautiful idyllic countryside with the father-of-four even stopping to take pictures of Irina, as they appeared to be very comfortable around one another.  

Relaxed: The Hangover star teamed his off-duty look with white trainers as he emerged following the news of Irina’s new romance

End of an era: Kanye’s nearly seven year marriage to Kim Kardashian came to an end in February, with the reality TV sensation filing for divorce (pictured in June 2018)

DailyMail.com has learned Kanye and Irina arrived at the hotel on Sunday, staying for three nights before departing around lunch time on Wednesday. 

The rapper is believed to have hired out the luxury space, which was closed to the public during their stay.  

During their vacation, the couple could also be seen taking snaps together near the Giant Crouching Spider sculpture by Louise Bourgeois at the Château La Coste Art Centre. 

France has always been a favored destination for the Yeezy star, who has spent extensive time there with his estranged wife Kim – having whisked her off to Paris when they first began dating in 2012. 

Kim famously sat front row at Kanye’s runaway show during Paris Fashion Week in March 2012, which amplified the huge buzz surrounding their relationship at the time.

Amicable: Irina and Bradley (pictured in January 2019 shortly before the split) share four-year-old daughter Lea and had remained friendly since their split

Jennifer Garner was the woman Ben Affleck turned to after he split from fiance Jennifer Lopez in 2004.

And now the Argo director has gone back to his Gigli costar which must be a lot for the 13 Going On 30 standout to take in. But a source tells UsWeekly that the 49-year-old Garner – who has three kids with Affleck – is fine with it.

‘JLo has Jennifer Garner’s seal of approval,’ said an insider.
