Sean “Diddy” Combs is the latest addition to the cast of Downton Abbey season four, according to the entertainer himself!
“MY BIG NEWS: So happy to announce that Im a series regular on DOWNTON ABBEY-my favorite show+i’ll be debuting a sneak peek tonight 12am PST!” Diddy tweeted.
“I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey,” he added. His Twitter profile background and header photo also reflects the hit period series.
No other details have been revealed, but the news has been denied by PBS. The new season will premiere in the U.S. on January 5, 2014 on PBS, but will be seen by British audiences first in the Fall.
