More Ed Sheeran More Ed Sheeran

No really, there's spoilers. Please stop now if you've not watched Game Of Thrones Season Eight, Ep One.

It (very predictably) smashed the ratings last night but there was a lot more going on in Games Of Thrones than just poor old Jon Snow finding out he's been doing some not great stuff with his aunt. 

After a near two-year wait for a new episode of the TV show, there was a lot to pack in to the season debut - including the long-awaited answer to the fate of musician Ed Sheeran and his much-discussed cameo appearance in season seven. 

Rolling Stone have pointed out that Sheeran's character Eddie had a very unfortunate run-in with a dragon which resulted in his face being burnt off, so we're feeling pretty confident that Sheeran won't be making a return appearance to help fight off the Night King.

The cameos haven't stopped in season eight though, with It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Rob McElhenney making an appearance as a crew member on the Euron Greyjoy's ship. Let's just say, he probably won't be making a return appearance...
