A third added excitedly: "I don't know what I was more impressed with, Ryan Reynolds' Bon Mots or @BritishBakeOff featuring on #RedNotice," as a fourth tweeted their shock: "Holy cow! Does @BritishBakeOff know they're in #RedNotice?"

Did you spot the Bake Off reference in Red Notice?

Speaking about his small part in the film, Ed told the Jonathan Ross Show he landed it from being friends with the director, Rawson Marshall Thurber. "He listed the three wonderful people who are in the movie. I said, 'It'd be great to film a scene with them!' I turned up and they'd already shot their bits."

The synopsis reads: "When an Interpol-issued Red Notice — the highest level warrant to hunt and capture the world’s most wanted— goes out, the FBI’s top profiler John Hartley is on the case. His global pursuit finds him smack dab in the middle of a daring heist where he's forced to partner with the world’s greatest art thief Nolan Booth (Ryan Reynolds) in order to catch the world’s most wanted art thief, 'The Bishop' (Gal Gadot).

"The high-flying adventure that ensues takes the trio around the world, across the dance floor, trapped in a secluded prison, into the jungle and, worst of all for them, constantly into each other's company."
