The veteran actress plays the Countess of Grantham in ITV's period drama, and has filmed scenes with Clooney for a special Text Santa mini-episode.

Usually dignified, the Countess won't be able to stop herself from fainting in a "comedy fall" when Clooney gives her a kiss in the episode, according to fellow cast member Laura Carmichael.

"There is a very brilliant moment with Maggie and George - and I don't know if I want to give away more than that really - but Maggie does a comedy fall," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Laura as saying.

"George plants a kiss and Maggie ends up on the floor, it's wonderful. He was hilarious."

The special one-off episode airs later in the year.
