Readers of the TATBILB books will already know that John Ambrose is a key character in the sequel. In P.S. I Still Love You.

He has also acted in iCarly, Teen Wolf and Rent: Live. Not to mention, he won Dancing with the Stars season 25.

Taking to Twitter, to announced the news, Jordan wrote: "P.S. I'm John Ambrose McClaren! Look out, LJ." alongside a video with Lana Condor. In it, Lana introduces him and Jordan says: "I'm just so excited to be here". He then tweeted: "I’m losing my mind. My heart is so full." What a king.
