Kit Harington played an April Fool’s joke on fiancé Rose Leslie that left her in tears

Whilst you'd presume that Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie would be used to seeing all sorts of disturbing things on the set of HBO's Game of Thrones, it appears that Kit Harington's bride-to-be still harbours quite of a fear of the undead.

Yes, although White Walkers and the such are rather terrifying, you have to bear in mind that Rose and Kit know all the actors, and see them undergo the painstaking process of becoming the fictional creatures.

Severed heads, however, are always alarming - especially when you don't expect to find one lurking in your fridge...

On the Jonathan Ross Show, Kit Harington (AKA, Jon Snow), revealed that he played a rather brutal April Fool's joke on his fiancé and ex-costar, Rose Leslie when he hid a fake severed head inside their fridge.

"It turns out that she's not a big, like my family does April Fool's, her family doesn't do April Fool's," Harington told Ross and fellow guest, Liv Tyler. "After that she was in tears. It didn't go down well. She pretty much told me if I did it ever again that would be it, and I think that's marriage included."

As you can see in the video below, the result was absolutely classic:

I mean, you can't help feeling sorry for Rose, can you? She's seen screaming for quite some time before she takes a seat on the floor in order to compose herself.

Kit and Rose met whilst filming the hit television show, Game of Thrones. Kit, of course, is one of the central characters, Jon Snow and Rose played Jon's love interest, the Wilding, Ygritte. However, as this is Game of Thrones, the liaison didn't last too long - Rose's character was killed off in the penultimate episode of season four.

After confirming that they were involved in 2016, Kit revealed that the two had moved in together in May of this year and that they were "very, very happy".

The pair finally announced their engagement last month via a notice in The Times which read: "Mr K.C. Harington and Miss R.E. Leslie - The engagement is announced between Kit, younger son of David and Deborah Harington of Worcestershire, and Rose, middle daughter of Sebastian and Candy Leslie of Aberdeenshire."

In a rather bizarre twist following the announcement, however, a fan discovered that Kit and Rose are actually distantly related. Kit's Wikipedia page reads, "through his paternal grandmother, Lavender Cecilia Denny, Harington's eighth-great-grandfather was Charles II of England." Rose has a similar connection: "her mother is Candida Mary Sibyl "Candy" Leslie (née Weld) of Clan Fraser, maternal great-granddaughter of Simon Fraser, 13th Lord Lovat, and descendant of Charles II of England."

But given that Charles II died in 1685, it's unlikely that this shared ancestry will have any consequences whatsoever.

Well, I think that confirms it, Rose and Kit are the most adorable celebrity couple out there. Although, I do have a feeling that Kit will refrain from doing anything too dramatic when April Fools day next rolls around...
