ACTOR Ed Speleers, who plays valet Jimmy Kent in Downton Abbey, is running the London Marathon in April to raise funds for Somerset Cancer Care, a service provided by Bishop’s Hull-based St Margaret’s Hospice.

He popped by to meet the charity’s Yeovil support group and then met staff and patients at St Margaret’s in Yeovil.

Ed said: “I’m thrilled to be able to run for Somerset Cancer Care and I’m really humbled by the great work being carried out there and at the hospice.

“I just can’t believe how positive the patients and families are – I know they’ll really inspire me while I’m running.”
