An all-star cast gathered to parody Downton Abbey exactly a decade ago for the BBC’s charity fundraiser Red Nose Day.

Red Nose Day launched in 1988 and donations help tackle important issues including homelessness, hunger, domestic abuse and mental health stigma, all of which have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

They support amazing organisations across the UK and around the world.
