The 32-year-old played the monarch's sister in the historical drama for two series before Bonham Carter, 54, took over for season three. She's set to reprise her role in the fourth instalment before Lesley Manville steps in for seasons five and six.

The six-week campaign from War Child UK is aiming to raise £300,000 through the Crowdfunder for the relief effort.

A wealth of experiences involving other famous faces are available through prize draw or to bid on and buy instantly, with details to be found here.
