Jeremy Swift made his debut in Downton Abbey last year as Spratt; the butler of the Dowager Countess. Initially cast for just a two-scene role, Jeremy has seen his character develop after his brilliant on-screen chemistry with Dame Maggie Smith.

Ugly Betty and Extras star Ashley Jensen joins us to talk about her role in the one-off christmas crime drama Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death. Move over Miss Marple, there's a new detective in the village!
Based on a book by MC Beaton, Ashley plays the lead character - a PR executive who moves to the country for a quieter life and inadvertantly gets accused of murder by her poisoned quiche.
She says: It's kind of whimsical. Frothy, fun and frolicky, it's a little bit Desperate Housewives, it's almost a bit technicolour in contrast to some of the gloomy TV on at the moment. It's a real case of whodunit."
With 25 books there is scope for more episodes. Ashley continued: "There is a hope. We would have a lot of fun doing it. It would be wonderful."
Ashley is looking forward to Christmas after moving back to the UK following six years in Los Angeles.
She said: "I'm very happy to be back. I totally embraced it and had publicists and stylists but I got the grand old age of 38 and I'd forgotten how to dress myself! It's a bit transient. A lot of people were hoping to be someone else or be somewhere else. Things are too fast these days. I just want to slow down a bit."

Ethan, who plays the father of a young boy growing up, said: ''Each year, for 12 years, we got together to film. We changed the time of year. My job was to do a portrait of fatherhood. A person changes a lot, my dad did.

When we saw George Clooney was getting married on the same day we thought we had a chance of keeping it quiet as everyone would be looking at him!
Opera beauty Katherine Jenkins says she was very grateful George Clooney's September nuptials co-incided with her own.
Katherine married US filmmaker Andrew Levitas on the same day the Hollywood star tied the knot with lawyer Amal Alamuddin in Venice.
And Katherine admits she was able to sneak under the radar while all the attention was focused on events in Italy.
She said: "We wanted it to be all the family together and just be the normal bride and groom, we were a bit concerned that we could get away with that.
