As you probably well know, I am the world’s biggest Game of Thrones fan.
When I received an invitation to the UK premiere I may, possibly have done a little dance. It could perhaps have involved me sliding across the kitchen floor in my socks and shimmying on down, in my pants.
But that would be a ridiculous thing to admit to, so I shan’t say either way.
On the night I didn’t have anyone around to take outfit snaps, so tried a very grown up selfie.
But it’s quite hard to get a whole dress into a selfie and really I felt like this inside…
Giving up and accepting I’d never be a “cool selfie” kinda girl, I set off to the party.
The beautifully creepy Guildhall was bathed in 3D projections and there were flaming torches everywhere.
We all marched up the red (black) carpet and stormed the castle, stopping for a few commemorative snaps along the way.

Resorting to using the flames to keep away the chill in the air!
The setting was perfect.
It felt as though we were sitting in the belly of King’s Landing.
We took our seats, watched over by a very stern Duke of Wellington, who didn’t approve at all.
Wiggled into our cushions & rustled open our popcorn.
Finally, after a little speech it was show time! The lights dimmed and the projector fired up.
We, obviously, weren’t allowed to take any pictures during the show.
And I don’t want to give anything away, but the first episode is AWESOME! It’s so good, you are going to love it!
I’m so thrilled that the new season is starting… I’m considering going back and watching all the old ones again. Do you think I have time before the next episode?
This one is due to be broadcast on April 6th at 9pm ET in America, so Sky have decided to show it at the same time here… which is 2am! It’ll also be on again at the more civilised time of 9pm, but if you’re a die hard fan you’ll already have seen it by then.
After the screening we had a little Q&A with some of the cast who chatted about what it was like to film the show.
And then afterwards everyone got to go downstairs for a little photo op in the Iron Throne, which I sadly had to miss as I was late to meet my date at Claridge’s, way back in Mayfair.
So drowned my sorrows in bellinis and fried things.
I literally cannot stop talking about how great the new season is. I’m so grateful to have had a little sneak peek.
It’s exciting, gory, sexy and tantalising… as every first episode should be.
He’s the new trailer, just to wet your appetite.

Winter is coming.
Are you excited?
