Yep, it might be a bit of a mouthful, but people are already talking about mistaking the film for a Downton Abbey reunion so chances are if you like the series, you're going to love the film.

It's no surprise given that the two production companies share a number of main cast members including Mamma Mia 2 star, Lily James.

But after her role as Lady Rose McClare, Lily went on to star in Cinderella, Pride and Prejudice and Zomies, Baby Driver and of course Mamma Mia 2.

In The Guernsey - as people have shortened it - Lily plays WWII era writer Juliet Ashton.
