Could life get any better for Ed “top of every chart” Sheeran right now? A week after his new album Divide broke Spotify streaming records, ‘Game of Thrones’ producers have confirmed that the star will be making an appearance in the show.

GOT makers appeared at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Texas on 12 March, where they revealed Sheeran would play a part in Season 7 of the HBO show.

Producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss said that Sheeran is so popular with the cast, they’ve wanted him to guest on the show for some time.

According to Entertainment Weekly, there is of yet no word about what exactly his role will be.

His cameo follows a long list of celebrity spots on GOT. Metal band Mastodon, Sigur Rós, Coldplay’s Will Champion and Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol have all randomly been seen strolling about in Westeros.

The show returns on 17 July in the UK.
