Sue Perkins, one of the co-hosts of The Great British Bake-Off, will host a new format of Sky Atlantic’s Thronecast series when it returns in April with season five of the globally popular show.
The Game of Thrones spin-off show will be broadcast live in front of a studio audience following each new episode of the HBO fantasy-drama based on George R. R. Martin’s novels.
Thronecast will launch with an hour-long special after the premiere of season five on Monday 13th April. It will then continue with nine half-hour episodes accompanying each instalment.
Perkins will be joined each week by a panel including cast and crew members, celebrity fans and guest experts.
Thrones expert Jamie East will also return to provide special reports and audience interaction, along with previews of upcoming episodes and behind-the-scenes footage.
Game of Thrones returns to HBO in the US on 12th April, premiering a day later on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
