The actor explained: "There's a guy at my Sainsburys I go to, I love this man. He's very dear to my heart. He sees me come in and he goes straight to the till and he bars everyone else, he flicks them across until I get there and he goes 'You ain't dead is it?' And I'm like 'I am dead.' And he goes, 'Nah, you ain't dead, I know' and I'm like 'How do you know? I'm dead.' And he goes, 'You'd be crying if you were dead' and this happens every time I go in. I think he thinks I'd be weeping in the street for the rest of my life that I'm not in Game of Thrones anymore."

Asked how he keeps the show's secrets to himself, Kit replied: "I am no longer involved in the show so any secrets that are with the show I don't actually know anymore, so it becomes very easy Jonathan. You're looking at me like you don't believe me. It's going to be so relieving when people actually see the show and realise that I don't come back."

Further pushed by Jonathan about being spotted filming in Belfast, Kit rebutted: "I was playing a corpse. I was there for a little bit, I was there for about a month or two months, it was spread over a bit and I was playing a corpse."

He continued: "I won't tell you how many episodes I'm lying dead but it's enough that I was out there for quite a while. It's going to be so satisfying when you see it and you realise that I was telling the truth the whole time."

Even though he's certain about his fate, it's not just your regular fans that ask him about the show, with royalty even getting involved.

"I get this from everybody," he said. "Me and my brother got invited to Wimbledon as you do and a Royal was hosting, we didn't know which Royal it was and it was the Duchess of Cornwall and she was hosting it and we got sat with her, me and my brother, and she leant over the table and said 'Are you dead?' No word of a lie."

See Kit alongside Anna Friel, Frankie Boyle and Tinie Tempah on The Jonathan Ross Show, Saturday April 2 at 9.35pm on ITV.
