Prince will be appearing in the episode alongside a host of special guests, according to the show's network Fox, writes Digital Spy. The episode will air Stateside on February 2, after the Super Bowl.

In the episode, Zooey Deschanel's Jess gets invited to one of Prince's mansion parties with her best friend Cece (Hannah Simone). The rest of the regular cast - Nick (Jake Johnson), Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Winston (Lamorne Morris) and Coach (Damon Wayans Jr) - then gatecrash the party.

It was previously reported that Prince himself contacted the show's producers and asked if he could appear in the series, as he was such a big fan. He pitched them an idea which involved one of his pyjama dance parties and was given the go-ahead.

Meanwhile, according to The Mirror, Prince is soon to announce a new UK tour. It would be the first time the 55-year-old performer has played in the UK since his appearance at the Hop Farm Festival in 2011, and the first time he has played multiple dates since since 2007, when he appeared for 21 nights at London’s O2 Arena.
