The hit ITV1 show Downton Abbey has gone down a storm on both sides of the Atlantic and attracts millions of viewers every time it is shown. The show is so popular that even The Rolling Stones, yes that’s right The Rolling Stones even finish their practice and rehearsal sessions early so they can get home to watch it.
According to Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith), Hugh Bonneville (The Earl of Grantham) and Ronnie Wood are the best of friends. Speaking to The Sun newspaper Carmichael said, “Hugh has been hanging out with Ronnie and they have been having a great time. They met doing charity work and Ronnie told Hugh how much they loved Downton. Apparently they were stopping rehearsals on Sunday nights in time to get back to watch it.”
She went on to say, “When Sybil passed away, Mick said to Ronnie, ‘Sad to hear about the girl’. Ronnie replied, ‘I haven’t seen it yet — I recorded it.’”
Who’d of though it Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood are fans of Downton Abbey. They could give Dame Maggie Smith (The Dowager Countess) a run for her money no doubt. Who knows they may even get a part in the next series, now that would be worth watching would it not?
