Meanwhile, it was recently announced the fifth series of 'Downton' will see a few familiar faces joining the cast including 'Withnail And I' star Richard E.Grant and Anna Chancellor of 'Four Weddings And A Funeral' fame.
ITV confirmed that Richard - who is also currently starring in hit US drama 'Girls' - will play Simon Bricker who visits Downton as a guest of the Granthams.
Anna Chancellor will also have a guest role, playing Lady Anstruther.
