Watch out, Lord Grantham! George Clooney will appear in an upcoming charity special for ITV's Text Santa, and a scandalous new preview shows him kissing the arm of Countess Grantham (Elizabeth McGovern).

In the preview, a hunky Clooney plants passionate kisses up McGovern's arm, while "Let It Snow" plays in the background.

In separate photos released from the special, Clooney poses with his offscreen pal Hugh Bonneville, who was reportedly responsible for bringing the Monuments Men actor to the set of the show. Bonneville, who plays Lord Robert Crawley on the series, starred in the 2014 action/drama movie Monuments Men, which Clooney directed.

Watch the preview above. ITV's Text Santa special airs Friday, Dec. 19.
