If there was never any Lord Grantham, Downton Abbey would be a very different place. That’s the premise of this spoof sketch created for the “Text Santa” charity event on British network ITV. There’s granny breaking the world record for ski jump, strip poker in the servant’s quarters and Lady Rose modeling a sexy silk camisole. (“This will be perfect for when I’m being flighty and spontaneous,” Lady Rose announces in her flightiest, most spontaneous voice.)
But all this pales in comparison to the group selfie with Lady Grantham’s handsomer husband… George Clooney.
