Good Morning Britain in chaos as Downton Abbey star takes over interview – leaving Kate Garraway and Ed Balls speechless | The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain was left in chaos today after an excitable Downton Abbey star left Kate Garraway and Ed Balls speechless.

Robert James-Collier – who played Thomas Barrow in the period drama – was described as a "whirlwind" by viewers.

Actor Robert, 46, didn't let the presenters get a word in edgeways as he interrupted, spoke over them and took control of the conversation.

At one point he even ignored Ed, before asking: "What was the question?"

Ed repeated his question about being confused for his Downton Abbey character and Robert cheekily replied: "No, not at home. Everyone just calls me dad."

Going off topic, Robert then told the hosts: "Your showbiz producer… I think she deserves a place in front of the camera because she's got a natural aura, chemistry and exudes positivity.

"She made me feel good about myself and I'm wearing a fleece because i'm comforted by her."

The bizarre comment left Ed and Kate bamboozled.

Former Coronation Street star Robert was then asked if he'd ever return to the ITV period drama.

"I don't know because I left with Dominic West," he said.
