Having been named British single of the year at the Brit awards Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson has also been given another (rather dubious) honour. A mash up parody that turns it into a Downton Abbey inspired class mash-up. It’s from the rather splendid college humor team.
Downton Funk doesn’t feature any actual cast members from the show, oh how we wish it did, but it does feature some lookalikes (well not really but they are dressed up Downton style). Check it out below.
Now that ratings have started in earnest Channel 7 have made a few amendments to their schedule, Resurrection is back for the last four episodes of it’s second season from 22 Feb @ 10.30pm; Also on the 22 Feb the fifth season of Downton Abbey will premiere with a 90 minute special. 22 Feb is shaping up to a busy night with My France With Manu airing @ 7.00pm it’s a two parter and will conclude the following week.

ITV’s annual Text Santa fundraising fest this year managed to raise it’s highest total ever at £5,503,065.
In four years of fundraising, Text Santa has now raised over £20,500,000. This year’s proceeds will directly benefit six UK-based charities as 100% of all money raised goes directly to those charities.
The star-studded show was packed with surprises for audience and presenters, music performances, and emotional true-life charity films.
From the astonished but ultimately delighted target of the ‘Takeaway’ surprise who had no idea of the roles Gordon Ramsay, Gok Wan, Little Mix, Peter Andre and Laurence Llewelyn Bowen had been playing so recently [...]
Turns out newly married Hollywood superstar George Clooney is such a fan of ITV’s Downton Abbey that he couldn’t resist taking up the offer of a part in the special DA sketch for ITV’s annual charity fundraiser Text Santa.
In the sketch Lord Robert Crawley (played as always by Hugh Bonneville) is on the verge of financial ruin and in best It’s A Wonderful Life style suggests that his family would be better off without him. Enter Clooney who shows him just what life would be like for everyone if he had never been born.
For Text Santa, which airs Friday 19th December on ITV, presenting duos Ant and Dec, Phillip Schofield and Christine [...]

“The sun is rising behind Downton Abbey, a great and splendid house in a great and splendid park. So secure does it appear, that it seems as if the way of life it represents will last for another thousand years. It won’t.”

Once again it’s going to be the centrepiece of ITV’s Christmas schedule. A special two hour episode of Downton Abbey as the Crawley family celebrate grouse season in the autumn of 1924.
There are a couple of choice guest stars too in the shape of the fab Alun Armstrong who plays a Butler called Stowell and who works for the Sinderby family. Meanwhile Jane Lapotaire is playing the much talked about Prince Irina.
The setting is Brancaster Castle (in reality Alnwick Castle in Northumberland) where the Sinderbys have invited the Crawley’s to a shooting party. It seems butler Stowell is none too happy about the holiday and sets about doing his best to [...]
ITV have confirmed what we all knew was a shoe-in, their ratings rollercoaster Downton Abbey will get a sixth season. Still hugely popular not just in the UK but all over the world – particularly the US and Australia (and the other 248 territories it is seen in), the series could well run for as long as that other round the world favourite Midsomer Murders.
The series, which is made by Carnival Films for ITV, has just wrapped up it’s fifth season and ratings have remained extremely solid with well over 10 million viewers tuning in to each episode just in the UK alone.
Downton will have a Christmas special which will be one of the centrepieces of the ITV [...]
