During an appearance on the Jonathan Ross show two years later, Kit told how he’d contacted the Game of Thrones producer to find out his filming schedule in case they needed to change the date of his nuptials which clashed with the final season.

He said: “I rang him up and I said, ‘I’m getting married and it’s all your fault actually,’

“I think for the final season he is so stressed that he’s reached that peaceful level.

“I was like, ‘You need to factor in a Game of Thrones wedding by the way.’ They [the cast] have all got to be there so the whole thing has got to shut down.”
