Its cinematic range has revolutionised 21st century television, but a misplaced cup appeared to undermine the credibility of Game of Thrones on Sunday evening.

But the gaffe was not lost on eagle-eyed viewers, who promptly expressed their disbelief on social media.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: ‘So this is where we’re at now! A Starbucks cup!’
