With series seven of Game of Thrones just around the corner, William Hill have started to see a spike in their market for who will end series eight as the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms.

In the last 24 hours, it has been one way traffic with Cersei Lannister backed in from 14/1 to 5/2 favouritism. She is just ahead of 3/1 second favourite, Daenerys Targaryen, 4/1 third favourite and Tyrion Lannister at 9/2.

Death is never too far away in Game of Thrones and it is just 6/4 that one or more of Cersei, Daenerys, Jon or Tyrion perish in series seven.

"If our punters are to be believed, Cersei is going to have a very prominent role in these last two series of GoT," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Who will rule the Seven Kingdoms at the end of the final TV episode of Game of Thrones:

5/2 Cersei Lannister;

3/1 Danerys Targaryen;

4/1 Jon Snow;

9/2 Tyrion Lannister;

8/1 Sansa Stark;

12/1 The Night King;

14/1 Petyr Baelish;

16/1 Bran Stark;

25/1 Arya Stark;

6/4 One or more of Cersei, Daenerys, Jon or Tyrion to die (and not come back) in series seven
