To celebrate the release of the new Downton Abbey film, presenter Ria Hebden traveled to Highclere Castle to take a tour of the famous TV and film set. The cinematic return of the period drama will see the characters set off on a journey to the South of France to uncover the mystery of the Dowager Countess’ newly inherited villa while a film crew is at work in Downton.

On Lorraine, Ria met Lady Fiona Carnarvon and was shown in the stately halls, peeking over where Downton Abbey was filmed.

Juliette said, “Why is she wearing dark glasses?” And a third tweeted: “Why did Lady Carnarvon wear sunglasses?”

At the end of the interview, Lorraine explained why Lady Carnarvon wore the accessory while talking to Ria. She said: “Lady Carnarvon wears sunglasses. She’s got a little eye infection, she wasn’t starry.”

Following Lorraine’s statement, Ryan tweeted, “Lorraine Kelly just told me.”

Another replied: “And me”, followed by laughing crying emojis.
