GLIDING over the stunning Altai mountains in a batsuit, Cadbury’s new Milk Tray Man makes his TV debut in an epic film.

Widnes firefighter Patrick McBride beat 20,000 hopefuls to resurrect the much-loved romeo.

The real life hero spent a week shooting the exotic adventure – 50 years after the original escapade.

In a James Bond like drama, thrilling flying sequences, a horde of Mongolian tribesmen and stampeding yak show the lengths he is prepared to go to.

In the elusive black polo shirt he delivers chocolates to a Mongolian yurt – ending with the famous catchphrase: ‘And all because the lady loves ...' 

The £3 million advertising campaign will be revealed during ITV’s X Factor live show tomorrow.

Speaking exclusively to The World, Patrick, 40, said: “It was brilliant.

“The exotic location is a euphemism of me going that extra mile.

“I was living in a yurt while we filmed. Every morning I stepped out to a stream and a stunning view.

“I feel very lucky to be part of this nod back go the original.”

The actor laughed when asked how many of the daring stunts he had performed himself.

“There are some things I couldn’t have done,” said Patrick. “You’ll have to keep an eye and spot which ones I did and didn’t do."

He said he isn’t surprised to get ‘a bit of banter’ from his firefighting colleagues on green watch but the guys are all behind him.

"I do get a bit of stick but they are quite proud of me," he said. 

It has been a momentous year, he said, having celebrated his 40th birthday and becoming a dad for the second time.

His wife Elaine, 34, who nominated him for the Cadbury's role, gave birth to their second son Elliot seven weeks ago.

The couple already have a four-year-old son Will.

“It’s been a good year for me,” he said. “Elaine played a big part and put me forward for the role.

 “It is an honour to play this iconic figure.

“I want to do this for as long as they want me.”
