    Game of Thrones season eight is on its way – and we officially can’t wait.

    Our past few months have been dominated by GoT news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros.

    But it wasn’t Sophie Turner confessing to being banned from washing her hair during filming or Maisie William talking about her final scene that had the world talking today.

    Instead it was Kit Harington that made news when he confessed to Zoe Ball that he had kept one of his GoT props as a momento.

    Kit Harington as Jon Snow

    But what did he take with him to remember his Game of Thrones days? His iconic coat? His sword? His direwolf, Ghost?

    Nope. As it turns out, Kit opted to take a statue of his character, Jon Snow, that appears in the season 8 teaser trailer.

    ‘I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt?’ he reportedly told Zoe Ball. ‘I kept it. They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed.’

    Yes, this is not a drill. Kit Harington has a statue of Jon Snow in his shed.

    ‘How sad is that?’ he laughed. ‘I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am.’

    And as for what he’s planning to do with the prop, he explained: ‘I’m going to turn it into a water feature.’

    We wonder how Rose Leslie feels about this!!

    Either way, we cannot wait for season eight.
