The stars of Downton Abbey are giving fans a chance to visit the set of the popular Tv series to raise money for victims of the deadly Typhoon that hit the Philippines last year (Nov13).

The cast of the British period drama has launched a contest on fundraising website to benefit the Be The Change organisation, which aims to help those in need following the devastating storm which claimed the lives of more than 6,000.

Fans can make a $10 (£6) donation, and they will be entered into a contest to win the chance to spend the day with the cast of Downton on the show's set in England.

Some of the show's stars, including Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and Lesley Nicol, also created a video promoting the competition, explaining the top 10 reasons fans why should enter.

The actors suggest that winning the grand prize could mean finding out possible spoilers, saying, "There's a good chance someone (a character) dies when you visit the set," and adding, "The picture you take on set will be the first selfie ever taken in 1920s England."
