Downton Abbey is known across the world for its elegance, sophistication and grace.

Well, all that's down the toilet thanks to an encounter between Lady Edith, Mrs. Patmore, and Mrs. Hughes and Cards Against Humanity.

Cards Against Humanity is a cult card game where each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card.

The funniest answer wins, and the game is full to the brim of rude, offensive, daft and innapproporate cards.

Stars of Downton Abbey, Laura Carmichael, Lesley Nicol and Phyllis Logan, were invited by Entertainment Weekly to indulge in a few rounds of the naughty card game and the results involved 'Barack Obama', 'Bitches' and 'Balls'.

Check out the entire, hilarious game below:
