diddy downton abbey Diddy coming to 'Downton Abbey'? 'Simply not true,' says PBSSean “Diddy” Combs created quite a stir online Wednesday when he tweeted that he would be coming to the hit U.K. period drama “Downton Abbey.”

“I have to admit that Downton Abbey is one of my favorite shows- and thats why Im so excited today. 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!,” writes Diddy.

He has also been tweeting sneak peek pictures that he claims are from the set, including the one above. Diddy would certainly not be the first famous fan of “Downton.”

However, a spokeswoman for PBS tells Zap2it, “This is simply not true.”

So, what exactly is going on? We really aren’t sure. Perhaps a “Funny or Die” sketch? Or a new installment of Jimmy Fallon’s “Downton Sixby”? Guess we’ll just have to wait until midnight PST to find out.
