TV shows interviewing people from home via video link wasn't a common thing, because of the potential for things to go hilariously wrong, but in the current coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, there's not much choice.

Downton Abbey star Phyllis Logan was speaking to Lorraine Kelly on yesterday's (June 20) Lorraine, when her husband – Pirates of the Caribbean's Mr Gibbs, Kevin McNally – popped into the room.

Bringing his wife a coffee, Kevin joked "can you keep it down, I'm trying to sleep" before letting them crack on.

Lorraine admitted she enjoyed seeing Kevin in his dressing gown, as she had "a wee crush" on the actor.

Phyllis also teased that the door is open for another Downton Abbey movie, after the first one finally came out last year.

"It's much the same with everybody – we all had such a ball doing the first film that everybody across the board would love to do another one.

"We shall find out in due course – but it wouldn't be for a while yet if it ever did. Fingers crossed it does!"

In April, producer Gareth Neame said that he, Julian Fellowes, and the movie's production company Focus Features are "totally committed to making a sequel", but wouldn't want to jump straight into it.

Considering how long it took to unite the cast for the first one, we aren't surprised at all.

Downton Abbey: The Movie is available to buy on digital, DVD and Blu-ray now.
