Brad Pitt has revealed he is a fan of British TV show The Great Pottery Throw Down and has "seen every season" of the Channel 4 competition programme.

In an interview with Joe.ie to promote his new action movie Bullet Train, Pitt revealed his affection for the British reality show after co-star Brian Tyree Henry brought up The Great British Bake Off.

The stars had been asked to identify their go-to explosive TV show or movie when Henry mentioned Bake Off, stating: "When those soufflés explode, man, you watch some stuff go down".

Pitt responded: "If we're going that route, I'm going The Great Pottery Throw Down."

When Henry exclaimed in delight, Pitt declared that he had seen every episode of the show, which debuted on BBC Two before moving over to Channel 4 and airs via HBO Max in the USA.

The duo quickly began discussing their affection for ceramic designer Keith Brymer Jones, who has been an expert judge across all five series.

Brymer Jones has become well-known for frequently bursting into tears when greeted by impressive pottery and moving stories from contestants.

Pitt said that the approach to judging on the show is "beautiful", adding: "He’s so kind. He’s so supportive. I tear up."

In Bullet Train, Pitt portrays seasoned assassin Ladybug, who is one of several trained killers attempting to track down a briefcase that is somewhere on an ultra-fast Japanese train.

Naturally, the job is made more difficult by the presence of other hitmen on the train, including Tyree Henry and Aaron Taylor-Johnson as brutal duo Lemon and Tangerine.

The film is directed by David Leitch, who is no stranger to fast-paced action having co-directed the first John Wick movie and subsequently helmed the likes of Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2.

That latter movie featured a memorable blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo from Pitt as invisible superhero Vanisher.

Bullet Train will arrive in UK cinemas from 5 August.
