Tina's having a leaving do and we're all invited.

Patrick Stewart has worn different guises over the years, but a Yorkshire Tea spokesman surprisingly hasn't been one of them.

The 81-year-old actor is known for playing Jean-Luc Picard in 'Star Trek: The Next Generation' and the Prime Video revival series 'Picard', as well as Professor Xavier in the 'X-Men' franchise and various theatrical performances on stage, especially when it comes to anything Shakespeare. He also played a particularly over-the-top version of himself in 'Extras', which was all sorts of wrong.

Now, however, the Yorkshire-born actor has swapped sci-fi and theatre for tea, as he promotes the infamous teabags of Yorkshire in the company's latest big-budget advert.

Based around a character named Tina leaving her office for good, it's up to Patrick Stewart and his trusty Yorkshire Tea to leave his departing colleague with an invigorating speech. And don't be late for the Dog and Trumpet, because there's a tab behind the bar.

Here's the advert.

This isn't the first time that Patrick has popped up in a TV advert - he famously joined forces with Mark Hamill for UbarEats, making all of the 'Star Wars' and 'Star Trek' fans geek over two huge stars from opposing franchises come together for the first time.

Yorkshire Tea has had a few big names who hail from the Yorkshire area promote their business in the past, including Sean Bean, Michael Parkinson, Kaiser Chiefs and the magician known as Dynamo.
