    If you’ve watched Game of Thrones, season 4 episode 9 your heart was undoubtedly broken when you watched Jon Snow hold his one true love, the wild and wonderful Ygritte, as she died in his arms.

    However, in real life, actors Kit Harington and Rose Leslie are even more in love than their on-screen counterparts, if that’s possible. Kit once revealed that he fell in love with Rose while they were filming the show in Iceland, saying: ‘Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love.

    ‘If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love.
    The pair took their relationship to the next level by moving in together this year, and things were looking even more serious this week when reports of an engagement started swirling.

    One publication claimed that Kit had proposed to Rose and that she had said yes in a report by Life & Style. They wrote: ‘Kit recently cooked Rose a romantic candlelight dinner and proposed to her. She burst into tears and immediately said yes!’
    A source even claimed: ‘It will be a traditional Scottish wedding with kilts and bagpipes. They aren’t into the whole Hollywood scene at all. They both love spending their free time having friends over for dinner parties or cuddling up on the couch. They’re best friends and are constantly making each other laugh.’
    However, just so squash all your dreams of a real-life Game of Thrones wedding, the rumours are apparently untrue.
    A rep for Kit told ‘They are not engaged.’
    So plain and simple – they won’t be speeding down the aisle any time soon. Sad.
