Ed Sheeran sings in Game of Thrones cameo - and people are NOT happy

Ed Sheeran made a cameo in the first episode of Game Of Thrones season 7.

After over a year of waiting, GOT fans were finally treated to an action-packed hour long episode, entitled Dragonstone, and many were surprised to see Ed Sheeran make an appearance.

The singer was dressed as a soldier and singing around a campfire in the middle of the woods when he caught the attention of Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).

Series creators David Benioff and DB Weiss previously revealed that Ed would feature in the new season, when speaking at a panel at South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas.

Although many were delighted to see Ed, die-hard fans weren't too impressed - and many took to Twitter to question why he appeared on the show.



In celebration of his cameo, Ed posted a picture of him in character on Instagram.

“Throwback to the time I was a Lannister,” he wrote.

Game Of Thrones season 7 first aired on Sky Atlantic at 2am, and will be repeated again at 9pm tonight.
