Mary joins the cast of Downton Abbey

It's the season for gathering autumn berries, and a special charity presentation of ITV drama Downton Abbey collected one of its own.

Mary Berry appeared at the star-studded exclusive screening last week in London.

She was pictured looking very colour co-ordinated in black tights , heels, handbag and dress styled with a chic silver bolero.

The 79-year-old Bath-born Great British Bake Off co-judge wasn't the only famous name at London's Empire cinema present for the bash.

The TV presenter and food writer rubbed shoulders with several cast members from Downton Abbey.

The much-loved ITV drama's stars who turned up on the day included 66-year-old Jim Carter (Carson the butler), Lesley Nicol (cook Mrs Patmore) and Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith).

Julian Fellowes, its 65-year-old creator, also enjoyed the glittering Leicester Square red carpet treatment prior to the showing of series five's opening episode.

All money raised went to the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund charity.
