One family in Flookburgh are watching the new series of Downton Abbey particularly closely. The hit drama returned to our screens without two of its biggest – and smallest – stars.

Cole and Logan Weston starred in the fourth series but viewers only saw one of them at a time as they took turns to play the role of baby George. The new series takes the story on a few years meaning two-year-olds are now too young to play the part but mum Charlotte said: ‘The boys aren’t in the show any more but we’ll definitely be watching to see how the story develops. It was great fun to be involved in the programme and it’s great that the boys will be able to look back and say they were in it.’

The twins’ involvement came about after Charlotte’s mum suggested she contact an agency. ‘She said they might be cast in a nappy advert,’ added Charlotte. ‘I didn’t really know the programme when Downton got in touch but we started watching and we quite like it. It was amazing to be a part of it.’
