Director JJ Abrams has made time to visit the set of ITV's Downton Abbey while he was in London promoting his latest film.

Speaking from the white carpet at the premiere for Star Trek Into Darkness, the director said it was a "giddy thrill" to visit Ealing Studios.

He told the BBC's Lizo Mzimba he is a "huge fan" of the series.
