Ed Sheeran Thinks His Game of Thrones Character Is Dead

In a season that saw Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen knock boots and (spoiler alert!) the Wall come a'tumbling down thanks to the Night King's new zombie dragon, perhaps nothing generated more chatter than Ed Sheeran's much-discussed cameo in the Game of Thronesseason seven premiere.

OK, we might be exaggerating a little, but back at the beginning of the summer, it certainly seemed that all GoT fans had an opinion on the divisive cameo, which saw the crooner step into a Lannister soldier's uniform and appear alongside superfan Maisie Williams, showing off his golden pipes as he and his fellow soldiers showed Arya some kindness despite her "joke" that she intended on killing their queen. Was it a fun cheeky wink or a moment of artifice-shattering foolishness? We'll leave that for Twitter to continue to debate. The bigger question is: Will we ever see the guy again? According to Sheeran himself, don't count on it.

In fact, the "Shape of You" singer isn't even sure his character made it out of the season alive. After all, Dany's attack on Lannister forces on the Roseroad in "The Spoils of War," the season's fourth episode, left plenty of Cersei's men burned to a crisp courtesy of Drogon. "We were all quite young, those soldiers," Sheeran told MTV in a new interview. "I doubt I'm going to survive for that long, to be honest, when there are dragons in the world." (FWIW, that episode's director, Matt Shakman, told Mashable he didn't think "those soldiers were there."

Alive or not, Sheeran admitted that there are no plans for him or his vocal prowess to pop back up when the HBO hit returns for its final season (likely debuting in 2019 because the world is a dark and cruel place). "No one wants to see me come back," he said. "I wanted to be a cameo in it, and I've done the cameo. I'm cool with it, though. I enjoyed it."

Are you bummed that Sheeran won't be back or relieved that his tiny cameo was just that? Sound off in the comments below!

Game of Thrones' final season premiere date on HBO remains TBD.

CORONATION Street’s boss Kate Oates has revealed a raft of spoilers as the show launches its sixth weekly episode.

The new sixth show will debut for the action packed wedding of Eva Price and Aidan Connor, beginning on September 20 as part of a massive week for the soap.

Corrie fans will now get double helpings of their favourite soap on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays every week.

Producer Kate Oates has revealed that the massive week will kick off a huge autumn for the show.

In an unexpected twist Eva Price's revenge plan will hit a roadblock when Aidan Connor confesses to his affair with Maria on their wedding day.

Despite this Eva plans to go ahead with her plan to jilt Aidan but uses his confession to humiliate Maria on the hen night.

However the wedding day sees Maria storm the ceremony to try and stop Aidan from marrying Eva.

This will lead to one of Corrie's classic scraps with Maria and Eva fighting it out in a fountain, Eva in her full wedding ensemble.

Things also don't go to plan to Jenny Bradley and Johnny Connor when Rita is rushed to hospital and jenny refuses to leave her bedside putting their wedding in doubt.

Katy Perry Plugs ‘Make Roar Happen’ Campaign

Though she’s likely financially set for life, Katy Perry still regrets not getting enough out of her education during her childhood.

While promoting her classroom initiative “Make Roar Happen,” the “I Kissed a Girl” songstress recounted the unusual way she did school as a kid.

"I was being pulled out of school even in the middle of school and sometimes being homeschooled. Sometimes we were sent to these really half-Christian, half-education, I-don't-know-what-they-were schools."

She continued, "I'm kind of bummed at this stage that I didn't have a great education because I could really use that these days. I've learned to educate myself at this stage and how to continue my education at any age. I'm going on 30 and I'm still very thirsty for information. On tour, we go to different museums and get to soak up all kinds of different cultural experiences."
