Shown as part of the charity drive's annual ITV broadcast, the one-off sketch poked fun at events in the main show and added a Christmas Carol twist.
After Lord Grantham receives a telegraph informing him he has squandered the family's fortune, he curses the fact he was ever born.
He then decides to "take the car for a spin" and plans to never return.
However, an angel (Lumley) stops him in his tracks and takes him on a journey to show what life at the manor would have actually been like had he never existed.
Piven reprised his role as Mr Selfridge in one magical premonition, with his department store underwear causing a stair upstairs as a game of strip-poker takes place among Downton's downstairs staff. »
Can a girl get a better Christmas present than a kiss from George Clooney? And not just any kiss. If you happen to be the Countess of Grantham, you get to enjoy a Clooney smooch the full length of your left arm from wrist to shoulder. The romantic moment is featured in the latest sneak peek of the Hollywood star's cameo - he was previously seen taking a selfie on set - in a charity Downton Abbey sketch, which airs Friday on British television. The clip shows Clooney passionately kissing Elizabeth McGovern's arm in front of a valet, while »

Speaking about his cameo, actress Laura Carmichael said that the Dowager Countess "ends up on the floor" when Clooney offers her a kiss.
Meanwhile, Clooney joined the cast of the period drama for one amazing selfie during his time on set.

ITV has debuted a first-look trailer for the new series of Mr Selfridge.
The period drama, starring Jeremy Piven as real-life entrepreneur Harry Selfridge, will return to screens next month.
The new promo - which features the track 'Worthy' by Jacob Banks - provides a glimpse at what to expect from the upcoming third series.
Picking up in 1919, Piven's Selfridge is seen mourning the loss of his wife Rose and distracted from running his grand department store.
Kara and Hannah Tointon will join Mr Selfridge for its new run, with the two sisters playing Harry's daughters Rosalie and Violette, while Zoe Wanamaker has been cast as Russian princess Marie de Bolotoff.
"It was always conceived of as four series - that is, if people liked it enough," he explained earlier this year. »
The Hollywood actor will make a cameo appearance in the charity sketch, which airs tonight (December 19) on the ITV telethon.
Speaking about Clooney's appearance, Carmichael said: "It's amazing and we didn't even know if it would actually happen until he turned up! We were filming away and then heard, 'He's here, he's here, he's arrived'.
"But he was wonderful and so brilliant and I'm very excited for everyone to see it."

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.
Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.
Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.
Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.
I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

Speaking about the sketch, Lumley told the Daily Mail that she enjoyed working with Clooney and his "fabulously familiar and beauteous face".

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

What the Golden Globes 2015 nominations say about TV right nowThe full list of nominationsGolden Globes 2015: a lively list to kick off the awards season
Right. We’ll wrap things up there. Things to take away from today’s nominations:
Peter Bradshaw has file his thoughts on the Globes. Here’s a snippet:
It’s the Globes! Hardly any institution has benefitted more from the rise of the awards-season and the predominance of celebrity culture. Once mocked for being the rackety and faintly preposterous creation of Hollywood’s grandly-titled Foreign Press Association, the Globes is now not just a curtain-raiser for the Oscars, but an event which visibly luxuriates in being »

The Golden Globes! Everyone’s favorite Almost-the-Oscars ceremony. The 72nd Annual nominations were unveiled Thursday morning by presenters Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Paula Patton, Peter Krause and Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Theo Kingma.
The HFPA went in big on Boyhood, The Imitation Game, Birdman, and The Theory of Everything, placing Birdman into the Comedy/Musical category where it is likely to clean up. Missing from the bunch are heavy hitters like Angelina Jolie’s Unbroken, Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper and only a single nomination for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
On the TV front, it was a big morning for Transparent, Orange is the New Black, The Affair, and House of Cards, while snubbing Emmy favorites Modern Family, The Big Bang Theory, as well as hits like The Walking Dead, The Americans, Mad Men or the final season of Boardwalk Empire.

Kate Beckinsale, Peter Krause, Paula Patton and Jeremy Piven announced the 72nd annual Golden Globes Nominations Thursday morning, and as always, there were some snubs and surprises! Just as the 2015 SAG Awards did before them, the Golden Globes gave no love to Unbroken, directed by Angelina Jolie. Despite plenty of pre-season Oscar buzz, neither the film nor its lead actor Jack O'Connell (who plays the late Louis Zamperini) received any nominations. Unlike the SAGs, though, the Golden Globes did recognize Selma, a civil rights era film focusing on Martin Luther King, Jr. and his fellow activists back in 1965. The Oprah Winfrey-produced film is up for Best Motion Picture, Drama. Its star David Oyelow (who plays »

It's worth noting that Golden Globe motion picture nominees historically foretell what the »

Kate Beckinsale, Jeremy Piven, Peter Krause, and Paula Patton all got up early, like most of us movie buffs, for the big reveal! The 2015 Golden Globe Nominations! The usual suspects triumphed at the nominations such as "Boyhood," "Foxcatcher," "Selma," "The Imitation Game," and "The Theory of Everything." Missing was one of my favorite films of the year, "Whiplash" but it got one nod for J.K. Simmons' performance.
Also missing in the big categories is Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" which only received one nomination, Best Original Score. Watch the film to get kudos from the Academy in the technical categories.
We'll find out the winners of the 2015 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 11, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will return as our hosts of the evening and it will be broadcast live on NBC.
