Game of Thrones fans in Spain had a rather unexpected treat last night

As spoilers go, this one's pretty Mountain-ous.

HBO Spain accidentally released the latest episode of Game of Thrones last night, almost a week ahead of schedule.

The sixth episode of the current series, scheduled for broadcast next Monday, was made available to users of HBO and local network Movistar in the middle of the night.

The unintended release had nothing to do with hackers, but was instead a cock-up by HBO itself, according to El Mundo.

The show was left up for a whole hour before it was taken down - and fans quickly went mad at the news. It isn't known how many people managed to watch the episode during its brief appearance.

The news comes just days after HBO offered thousands of pounds to hackers so they don't leak the new episodes - money which seems rather wasted now.

So, if you're a GoT fan and can't wait to find out what happens in the next show, just go online and your Spanish comrades will no doubt be happy to dish.
