Winter isn't exactly coming anytime soon, but Game Of Thrones was certainly back on Monday evening as the UK premiere of House Of The Dragon season two launched in London.

The show, a prequel to the enormously successful HBO adaptation of George RR Martin's fantasy novels, follows the feud between Alicent and Rhaenyra as they vie for who will eventually rule from the Iron Throne.

But the swords were thankfully sheathed as the show's cast descended on the Odeon Luxe in a teeming Leicester Square.

Leading the way were show stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D'Arcy and Ewan Mitchell, with all three dominating the green carpet as proceedings got underway.

Matt - who plays the rebellious Daemon Targaryen - looked appropriately dapper in a generously cut navy trouser-suit as he greeted onlookers at the special event.

The actor, 41, was joined by glamorous co-star Olivia, who traded the regal gowns worn by Alicent Hightower in favour of an elegant off-the-shoulder evening dress.

Season one of House Of The Dragon premiered on August 21, 2022.

The first episode drew major ratings as it earned a whopping 10million viewers which lead to the season 2 renewal within just week of the premiere episode.

Each of the House of the Dragon Season 1 episodes averaged 29 million viewers in the U.S.

The series is set 200 years before the events of Game of Thrones and is based on George R.R. Martin's Fire & Blood novels.

The highly-anticipated eight episode second season will debut on Max on June 16.
