Game Of Thrones fans are being treated to a live viewing of the show at a pub after a two year absence.

The Bees Knees in Blackburn will be showing the first episode of the final eighth season tonight at 9pm.

Fans can enjoy a drink as they watch the action unfold on the HBO series, as the show’s popular characters return to fight for the famous Iron Throne.

Kit Harrington's Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke's Daenerys Targaryen and Lena Headey's Cersei Lannister are all in the running to rule Westeros.

The episode aired last night on HBO and Sky Atlantic, but fans were forced to wait till 2am in the UK to watch it.

At the Bees Knees, they will be able to watch it on a big screen, mingling with other superfans at the same time and getting a drink.

Following the opening episode, the first new one to air since season seven wrapped up in August 2017, fans lamented the fact they had to wait a week for episode two.

One fan said: "I can't believe that's it. That's the episode. I really have to wait a whole other week after that short ass episode."

Another fan said: "Look I need like 3-hour long episodes, this 1 hour is not going to cut it. Waiting a week is rough."

Episode one had a run time of 54 minutes, and is the shortest of the eighth season while the third instalment is the longest, running to 82 minutes.

Game Of Thrones continues on Sky Atlantic on April 21.
