Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes says it's an honour to have been asked to be President of this year's Royal Bath and West Show.

He and his wife Emma, who will share the role jointly, were at the launch at the showground near Shepton Mallet in Somerset.

The event is England's biggest celebration of rural life, and is in its 50th year.
