Company Offering 'Spoiler Insurance' For Game Of Thrones' Fans

The last ever episode of Game of Thrones aired last night. If you opted for sleep instead, you're probably considering deleting all your social media accounts and popping on some noise-cancelling headphones to avoid spoilers.

But it's not all bad news if you do end up spotting a spoiler or some tit at work lets you know how it ends, because you could get yourself £100 from insurance company Endsleigh which is offering 'spoiler cover' for the show.

To 'claim' from Endsleigh, you'll need to write 100 words explaining how the show was ruined for you and you'll be entered into a prize draw with 10 top prizes of a hundred quid and NOW TV passes so you can re-watch Game of Thrones, or find a new show for your Monday night dedication.

A spokesperson from the company said: "Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows of the last decade and the finale promises to bring in some of the largest audiences on record.

"With the show historically airing on US screens ahead of the UK, spoilers have always been an issue - so we wanted to address that head on with the first ever spoiler insurance policy, that will offer financial compensation for anyone whose day is ruined by an unwanted plot reveal.

"Whether it's a colleague at work who has stayed up and streamed the show at 2am, or a rogue news article giving away the story on social media - our Spoiler Cover will help provide consolation for fans who have had the ending revealed prematurely."

If you fancy giving it a shot, you can do so here.

Meanwhile, Sky Atlantic vowed to stick to a 24-hour social media blackout following the 2am broadcast of the show in an attempt to keep spoilers off its page.

A statement on Twitter read: "It has been an amazing ride over the last eight seasons. We have lived and loved every moment with you, but our watch will end soon.

"At 2am the final ever episode airs. We know that not all of you can stay up to watch live, and want you to enjoy that moment in your own time.

"We're stepping away from social media from midnight for 24 hours and suspending our accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

"Please, no spoilers."

Game of Thrones will be repeated on Sky Atlantic at 9pm tonight.
