Speaking at the 21st National Television Awards at The O2 Arena in London, Fellowes told DS: “I’m completely up for a movie. I’d love to do a movie.”

He added: “It would be very, very good fun. There’s all sorts of things that have to be settled – not least of which is the decision of when we’d make it. I’m up for it! The percentage chance is about 64.5.”
