Air justice! Judge Rinder takes chopper to court in adrenaline-fuelled advert

Mission Impossible-esque promo also features a leather clad clerk and a high-powered motorbike

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s financial crime barrister turned daytime TV star Judge Rinder taking a helicopter to court.

The crazy clip shows Rinder quietly reading a book in what appears to be a plush countryside mansion. Realising he has just ten minutes before he is due in court, the ITV star (real name Robert) is collected by helicopter and whisked off towards the city.

Emerging from the chopper sometime later, a now leather-clad Rinder — who is still listed as a tenant at London’s 2 Hare Court — hops onto the back of a motorbike ridden by his on-screen clerk Michelle.

With just seconds to spare he arrives at court and makes his way up the stairs.

The advert, which has already racked up over 55,000 views, marks the start of the seventh series of Rinder’s courtroom show. The first new episode will hit screens on 28 August.
