P Diddy's claim that he is joining the cast of Downton Abbey have been denied by producers of the show, however the hip-hop mogul has appeared in an online spoof version of the British period drama.

The rapper first made the shock revelation on his Twitter account yesterday (May 15), writing:



The rapper had been trailing the announcement all day on Twitter to his millions of followers, first writing "How many of y'all out there are Downton Abbey fans?" 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".

However, a source from Boston's WGBH, which produces Masterpiece, revealed to Billboard that "[Diddy] hasn't been cast in Downton Abbey."

That denial was proven to be unnecessary, however, with a Funny Or Die spoof of Downton Abbey, starring Diddy, going online earlier this morning (May 16). Scroll down to watch the video now.

Diddy has previous acting experience, appearing in episodes of Hawaii Five-0 and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia and also starring in the TV version of the Broadway play A Raisin In The Sun in 2008.

P Diddy was recently named the richest star in the hip-hop world by Forbes. The rapper – real name Sean Combs – kept hold of the Number One spot on the list, thanks to his huge $580 million (£382 million) fortune.

The Bad Boy Records founder has numerous business ventures, including his deal with Ciroc vodka and his Sean John and Enyce clothing lines, his marketing firm Blue and a handful of tech start-ups.
