Carl Barlow yesterday recreated his famous scene from Ridley Scotts 1973 Hovis advert - Voted Britain's favourite.<br />
<br />
The child actor who starred in the famous Hovis TV advert today marked its 40th anniversary by returning to the iconic cobbled hill to push his bike up it again.<br />
<br />
Carl Barlow was aged 13 when he won the starring role as a bakery delivery boy for the TV commercial that has been voted as the nation's favourite.<br />
<br />
In the ad, the teenager was filmed struggling to push a bike laden with freshly baked bread up the steep hill to 'Old Ma Peggotty's house', the last customer on his round.<br />
<br />
The advert, directed by Ridley Scott, was meant to depict a northern industrial town but was actually shot on Gold Hill in Shafesbury, Dorset.
