George Clooney For Downton Abbey Sketch
Suave movie star set to pop up in hit ITV show for charity...
Mums around the country will be getting hot under the collar today at the news that George Clooney is set to appear in Downton Abbey, sort of.
The silver fox is reported by the Daily Telegraph to have filmed scenes with the cast of the international hit show for ITV's Text Santa charity appeal.
But unfortunately he won't be appearing in the main Christmas episode of the period drama.
Last year's Text Santa saw Cheryl Cole appearing in a one-off Coronation Street sketch - and this year producers have aimed even higher to secure 53-year-old Clooney's services.
The appeal will raise funds for the Alzheimer's Society, Guide Dogs, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Teenage Cancer Trust, Together for Short Lives and WellChild.
