Ed Sheeran has revealed some key details about his forthcoming cameo in Game of Thrones.

The globally-successful singer will appear in the seventh season of HBO's fantasy series, and up until now it's been unknown in what capacity he'll appear.

It turns out he'll share screen-time with real-life friend Maisie Williams who plays Arya Stark.  

In addition to this, the chart-topper - who is headlining Glastonbury Festival this June - will sing in the series when it returns this July.

Speaking on The Hits Radio, he said: “I just do a scene with Maisie. I sing a song and then she goes, 'oh, that's a nice song'.”

Previous Thrones cameos have included Sigur Rós, Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody and Will Champion from Coldplay whose appearance preceded the infamous Red Wedding. 

Photos from the upcoming season were released recently with fans theorising that one seemed to contain a huge spoiler surrounding the possible demise of a main character.
