He told the Ellen DeGeneres show how he rushed out of the car and desperately tried to calm the four ‘kids’ down who were about to attack the delivery worker. 

He told the talk show host: ‘I saw a Deliveroo guy on a bicycle getting surrounded by some guys on a very cold November night and I just stopped the Uber that we were in and got out and tried to calm the kids down.

‘And I tried to calm him down, it looked like he was about to fight for his life.’
