Three year-old Isabella Ferris from Gladstone Road, Deal, caught the attention of Hollywood A-lister Robert Downey Jnr, when his helicopter landed in a field next to Dover Castle.

The Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes star hopped out of the aircraft at Broadlees Farm and made a fuss Isabella Ferris while her mum Kimberley snapped away with her camera.

Miss Ferris said: “He seemed to love our three-year-old daughter, came close to wave at her and posed too. We were quite lucky.”

The New Avengers sequel is being filmed at Dover Castle and includes an array of stars, including Scarlett Johansson, and Samuel L Jackson.
