Downton “Abbey Well”

TV producers were left embarrassed this week when a promotional photo for 1920s drama series, Downton Abbey, included a plastic water bottle in the background (must have been Abbey Well). Take a look below – its sandwiched between two priceless vases, just right of the toffs:

Thankfully its not the 1920s anymore and we’re able to drink water from polyethylene terephthalate containers and clear up historical inaccuracies using Photoshop.

An ITV spokesperson said “Cheers”.
