The Great British Bake Off presenter will helm Sky Atlantic’s ‘Thronecast’, a live review show featuring cast members, celebrity fans and absolutely no soggy bottoms. The first instalment will air immediately after the opening episode of series five on Monday 13th April.

Original Thronecast presenter Jamie East will return as resident GoT expert, delivering “special reports and audience interaction”, according to programme information.

Contrary to previous series which were pre-recorded, it will be broadcast live in front of a studio audience. The first week will be a 60-minute special, and Thronecast will continue in 30-minute instalments after the conclusion of each episode of the hit drama.
