DOWNTON Abbey star Jessica Brown-Findlay has revealed her frocks are so tight she once burst one by SNEEZING.

The hit period drama returns this autumn for its second series – which sees the Crawley family coping with the First World War.

Jessica, 21, who plays Lady Sybil Crawley, said: “I have bad hay fever.

“I was sitting in my trailer and I sneezed and burst my costume. It had to be sewn up at the speed of light because I was in the next scene.”
