KENDALL Jenner’s ‘secret twin brother’ Kirby is finally stepping to the spotlight and has landed a TV series.
The KUWTK fan initially found fame on Instagram by hilariously photo-shopping himself into the E! reality family’s photos and videos.
Branding himself Kendall’s “fraternal twin brother”, Kirby has built an impressive audience with 1.2million followers, which includes Sophie Turner, Gigi Hadid and many of the Kardashian clan.
And now the social media star’s popularity has helped him land his own show on Quibi called Kirby Jenner, which is executive produced by Kendall and mom Kris Jenner.
The eight-episode series, which premieres on May 24, will follow Kirby’s daily life alongside momager Kris, sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and the rest of the family
It will also have A-list celebrity guests and feature plenty of Keeping Up With the Kardashians-esque drama.
It’s incredibly hard running your own business, that’s why I’m grateful for the love and support of my family. BIG THANKS to my amazing sis Kendall who came out last weekend to help me clean up all the pony poops and pee pee. #CamptownRacesSingThisSong #DooDa #DooDoo
Equally thrilled about the upcoming series, Kirby shared the news on his Instagram account alongside a promotional image for the show.
He penned: “It’s me. I’m the secret Check out me and the family on my new show #KirbyJenner this SUNDAY on @quibi”.
Couldn’t find two mosquito costumes in time so instead I dressed up like a tent and Kendall dressed up like a campfire haha!! (Tent Suit by @cliffordjago Campfire Dress by @versace) #ThemeWasCamping #KylieWentAsABird #MetsGala
Though his real identity remains a mystery, the man behind the Instagram parody account first joked about being a secret member of the Kardashian family in 2015 when he shared a side-by-side blend of his and Kendall’s faces.
Since then the character has been expertly photoshopped into some of Kendall’s biggest red carpet moments including last year’s MET Gala.
In the rib-tickling shot, Kirby edited himself standing alongside Kendall in an orange tent beside her flamboyant orange Versace gown.
