Downton Abbey is thought to be poised to strike another casting coup with PRINCE HARRY’S ex-girlfriend CRESSIDA BONAS.

The 25-year-old is said to have been in talks with series creator JULIAN FELLOWES about a possible role, according to the Daily Star.

A source said: “She (Cressida) met Julian in the run-up to the Golden Globes. While it was a very informal chat, Julian was said to be hugely impressed with her.

“He even promised to set up a meeting with the show’s casting director in the UK to talk about a possible cameo in the next season, which may lead to a more permanent role.”

SHARON OSBOURNE has revealed she is terrified of dying of Alzheimer’s like her father.

The 62-year-old lost her dad Don Arden in 2007, following his battle with the debilitating form of dementia, and is worried she will suffer from it herself after testing positive for two of the four genes responsible.

Sharon told the Daily Mirror she and husband OZZY both had the tests done.

“The results showed I have two of the four genes that give it to you,” she said. “They’re not the two major genes, but they’re still there and I have them.”

Sharon continued: “I was terrified because my dad died from Alzheimer’s.

“It is the most soul-destroying disease.”

STEPHEN FRY is enjoying his honeymoon - because his new husband Elliott Spencer has let him put his feet up in front of the snooker.

The TV presenter and actor, who wed his partner on January 17 in Norfolk, joked that the pair have already settled into marital bliss.

“When your better half lets you watch the @bbcsnooker you know that marriage is a fine thing,” he tweeted.

Stephen, 57, and Elliott, 27, tied the knot in Dereham, Norfolk, near where the QI host grew up.

They posted photos of the ceremony to their followers, showing them signing the marriage register.

The X-Files could be looking to find the truth out there once again, as broadcaster Fox are interested in reviving the series.

The sci-fi show was a hit from 1993 to 2002, and bosses at Fox are said to be keen to get its stars DAVID DUCHOVNY and GILLIAN ANDERSON back as Mulder and Scully for a reboot.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Fox chairman and CEOs Dana Walden and Gary Newman have been in talks with the original series creator Chris Carter about a return to the programme.

Gary said: “It’s true that we’ve had some conversations on X-Files.

“We’re hopeful of being able to bring that back at some point.”
