Lloyd, a former England and Lancashire County Cricket star - now a renowned Test Match Sky TV commentator - arrives at Lancashire’s Old Trafford cricket ground to find the red rose painted white.

There’s an even bigger white rose painted on the pitch.

And Bumble, as he is affectionately known, is then apparently kidnapped and confronted by a Bond baddie-like Vaughan, stroking a Yorkshire terrier on his lap.

He tells Lloyd everyone must celebrate Yorkshire Day every year on August 1 - including arch-rival Lancastrians.

Lloyd, in the video promoting Yorkshire Tea, the Official Brew of England Cricket. snaps back at the former Yorkshire batting legend with a reminder: “Here...I thought you were born in Manchester!”

* Yorkshire Day was first celebrated in 1975, by the Yorkshire Ridings Society, initially in Beverley, as “protest movement against the Local Government re-organisation of 1974” - when some communities were separated from the county.

The date alludes to the Battle of Minden and also the anniversary of the emancipation of slaves in the British Empire in 1834, for which a Yorkshire MP, William Wilberforce, had campaigned.
