Game Of Thrones is the most talked-about TV show on earth but this week the conversation was not of the Night King or the God Of Death.

Nope, the subject on everyone's lips was a rogue coffee cup that managed to skip the production process and appear on screen.

Since that moment, HBO has digitally removed the unwanted guest star but rumours have still been circulating about who the culprit was. A number of fans pointed the finger at Sophie Turner, who plays Sansa Stark, but in an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel last night, the actress wasn't having any of it.

The 23-year-old claimed that the owner of the cup was, in fact, Emilia Clarke AKA Daenerys Targaryen, who can be seen in the now infamous shot.

When accosted by Kimmel, Sophie argues her case by saying "I mean look who it's placed in front of. Emilia Clarke. She's the culprit."

It's not clear if Turner is just trying to take the heat off herself and we await Emilia's response. Check out the interview below with the #coffeegate chat beginning around the 2.25 mark.
