P Diddy is to make a sensational cameo appearance on Downton Abbey! Or is he? The rapper has been telling fans recently on his Twitter that he’s a huge fan of the period drama and started hinting recently that he could be making a surprise turn on it! "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" he wrote at one point, followed by "I'm going to be making a big announcement in the next hour-im excited for yall to hear!" He then wrote: "I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today @DowntonAbbey".

Oh my God! So this is pretty exciting stuff, or we thought it was. But it turns out the whole thing’s a spoof of course. There’s no way P Diddy would appear on Downton Abbey. However, Diddy did provide the following hilarious clip of himself making a surprise appearance as the first black character to appear on the drama. Cleverly enough, he’s superimposed himself into some old Downton Abbey scenes and goes about his business in amusing fashion, including hosting the world’s first ever ‘white party,’ and appearing in the trenches during the war.

To be honest, from the footage we reckon that if Diddy was in Downton Abbey, it would make the program a heck of a lot more enjoyable to watch. Check out P Diddy 'in' Downton Abbey on Funny Or Die.
