George's appearance delighted viewers

Lady Grantham wasn’t the only character to be charmed by the Hollywood star, and the Dowager reacted exactly as we would when he planted a kiss on her.

George is said to have bagged himself a cameo on the show after becoming friends with actor Hugh Bonneville.
