Michelle and Allen also later helped the auctioneer increase the bids for a special prize that saw the lucky bidder win dinner with Michelle and fellow Downton co-star Joanne Froggatt at Claridges.

Teasing that she may even give away secrets of the Downton Abbey film, the bid closed at £2,500.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Allen was happy to reveal that they are still about halfway through filming and its going okay, although he was understandably loathe to reveal anything more
