If you're of a sensitive disposition, you may want to stop reading now. Allen Leech – aka Tom Branson – has uttered the words that every Downton Abbey fan lives in fear of.
The 32-year-old actor, who has been a feature of the hit period drama since it's first series, says he "definitely" sees an end point for the show. Definitely.
Speaking at the launch of series four of Julian Fellowes' global hit, Leech said: "I definitely see an end point. I think Julian sees an end point as well, more importantly than any of us."
And he didn't even stop there.
"We are at the end of series four. I can guarantee you we are not going to be sitting here talking about season eight. Or season seven, I would imagine," he continued, "I couldn’t really see it going past too many more anyway."
Sob. You're breaking our hearts, Allen...
