We've heard many a thing in our day, but Diddy's shock twitter announcement certainly took the cake. The music mogul took to his official account to reveal that he was apparently joining the cast of Downton Abbey. Fo'realz.

We weren't quite sure whether to believe the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy, Sean Combs and P Diddy or not. Sure hasn't he been known to pop up on the telly from time to time? Then he decided to tweet a link to a sneak peek of his stint on the show, and all became clear.

We have to admit, Downton Diddy certainly has a ring to it. And sure wouldn't it be gas to see him teaming up with Branson and Mary for an emotionally charged rendition of missing you?
