Thursday’s episode, presented by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, came live from Highclere Castle where the much loved drama is filmed.
The hosts were joined by members of the This Morning family, including the most recent member Maura.
While she usually appears in an agony aunt capacity dishing out tough love during the phone-ins, this week she was in a more humble role as a housemaid.
The reality TV star gamely dressed up as a maid for the occasion, and was found dutifully dusting when Alison Hammond dropped by for a chat.
But in true Maura style, she declared she wasn’t happy with her position and would work her way ‘upstairs’ as soon as possible.
She joked: ‘I should be upstairs because I am a lady. I’m not enjoying the dusting. I’m gonna work my way up.’
In her chat with Alison she dropped some knowledge on the famous films that had been shot at Highclere Castle, including Tom Cruise-starrer Eyes Wide Shut and The Secret Garden.
Also on the show, Holly and Phil interviewed stars of the Downton Abbey movie Michael Fox and Tuppence Middleton, and had a chat with the owner Lady Carnarvon.
She told the show that while she is a big Downton fan, filming at the castle can get a bit ‘messy’.
‘You don’t see the glamour,’ she explained.
‘You just see the computer village and cameras everywhere, and people in black parkas. And you see, the people they open every single window in February. ‘And they say “oh it’s so cold, how do you live here?” And it’s like, “we don’t open all the windows”.’
This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV.
