ARSENAL LEGEND Ian Wright has flown home from Brazil after his wife and children were the victims of a knifepoint burglary at their marital home.

It is understood four men armed with knives forced their way into his north-west London home and reportedly held a blade to his wife Nancy’s throat before making off with personal possessions.

The 50-year-old, who has been working as a pundit for ITV at the World Cup, last night (June 18) tweeted: “You won’t get away with it.”

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “We are investigating an aggravated burglary at an address in north-west London after we were called at 9.20 last night.

“Personal possessions were stolen. The suspects are described as four black men aged between 18 and 25, with London accents, wearing dark clothing and hoodies obscuring their faces.”

The Sun reported that one the raiders told another to “punch her, kill her” as they entered the property.

Wright’s manager Steve Kutner told the newspaper: “It was a terrifying ordeal. They marched Ian’s wife from room to room. I would like to thank ITV for helping Ian to get home as quickly as possible.”

Nancy, 39, is thought to have been put in a bedroom while the couple’s two girls were taken to another room.

Hip hop producer P Diddy has released a spoof video showing him ‘starring’ in hit TV show Downton Abbey.

The US music mogul, real name Sean Combs, had announced on his Twitter account that he was to become a regular on the popular ITV period drama.

“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!,” he said.

But after a series of posts promoting his ‘appearance’ in the show, a video featuring the 43-year-old was released on the Funny or Die website.

He begins by admitting his love for the series – declaring himself an “Abbeyhead” – before insisting he had been cast as its first black cast member.

A succession of clips follow, in which he appears alongside some the show’s main characters – while employing language unlikely to have featured previously in the period drama.

Having introduced himself as Lord Wolcott, the new owner of Downton Abbey, he assures footman Thomas Barrow: “You keepin’ these hoes in check right here.”

Another clip shows him attempting to coax the Dowager Countess and Isobel Crawley to kiss each other, telling them: “I want you to use your tongues.”

After initial bemusement at Diddy’s claim he had joined the Downton cast, the show’s makers, Carnival, welcomed the producer’s humourous skit.

A spokesperson said, in a statement issued to Sky News: “P Diddy has done a brilliant job with this skit and we are thrilled that he is such a fan of the show.

“We would certainly welcome him to visit Downton Abbey in the future. Lord Wolcott may meet the Dowager yet.”

Actor Elizabeth McGovern, who plays the part of Downton’s Cora, Countess of Grantham, also said she would be happy to see Diddy join the show’s cast.

“Cora looks forward to welcoming him as a potential future son-in-law with open arms and possibly more,” she said.
