Major spoilers are coming out of Game of Thrones’ Northern Ireland filming base this week (Spain production has now wrapped), where the battle at Saintfield/the battle of six armies/the battle of the bastards/Snow Bowl/whatever you want to call it, is being staged.

It’s set to be one of the most exciting scenes in season 6, possibly pitting Roose Bolton’s merciless bastard Ramsay against Ned Stark’s (potential) bastard and newly-resurrected Jon Snow.

What’s more, Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark) has been spotted on set, suggesting Jon might get to rescue his sister.

Watchers on the Wall’s sources claim there were no White Walkers there to ruin the fun, though 'the battle will have real casualties and we’ll be saying goodbye to some characters'.

Ramsay Bolton was apparently seen displaying two bodies upside down on X-crosses (the Bolton sigil) during the battle, the corpses of known characters.

With a giant (possibly Wun Wun) also spotted at the battle, it should make for a pretty intense episode, potentially challenging last season’s stunning Battle of Hardhome.

Game of Thrones season 6 has an expected release date of April 2016.
