Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke had to hide from drunken fans attending a wedding themed on the show in Spain.

The 29-year-old, best known for playing Daenerys Targaryen, said she was filming scenes for the HBO series when she ran into trouble.

"We booked into this lovely little hotel only to find ourselves in the middle of a Game Of Thrones-themed wedding," Clarke added.

"We spent ages trapped in our room hiding from drunk wedding guests who were trying to find us."

Game of Thrones is largely filmed in Northern Ireland and the series has injected millions of pounds into the local economy.
