Grab your tissues, the very last episode of Downton Abbey is upon us. If this isn't enough Downton to see you through, ITV are screening a special Bafta Celebrates Downton Abbey , which was aired on Monday, December 21.

In the Sun's interview, exec producer Gareth said that he and creator Julian Fellowes were keen to make a movie version of the show. A spokeswoman for production company Carnival Films denied the cast had any part to play in the decision to end Downton after six series, with the final episode airing on Christmas Day.
He served the Army before enrolling at the Alabama Polytechnic Institute under the GI bill, later dropping out to travel and work as a draftsman before becoming a writer.
