Tatler magazine has apologised for suggesting a former star of Downton Abbey was likely to be "fun in bed".

A photo of Daisy Lewis, who played Sarah Bunting in the ITV show, featured in the December issue with the caption: "This actress is loud. Which makes her fun at a party. And in bed. Probably."

The actress tweeted that she was "really shocked and upset" by the piece in its Little Black Book section.

Tatler said it would print a full apology to Lewis in its next issue.
