Hugh Bonneville may enjoy the finer things in life in ITV’s Downton Abbey but he’ll be sampling life at the other end of the financial spectrum when he takes on the role of a tramp in a BBC Christmas special. Bonneville is set to star as the title character in the network’s adaptation of David Walliams’ beloved children’s book Mr Stink. The story centers around the unusual friendship between a nine year old girl and the hobo living in her garden shed. Joining Bonneville in the cast are Sheridan Smith, Nell Tiger Free and Johnny Vegas. The hour-long family comedy will air on December 23 at 6.30pm. Click below for a sneak peak.
