The show which is popular for its 'Most Pirated TV Program' record, beat previous holder, U.S. crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, to break this new record.

The award was collected by Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on show;

"So pleased for Game of Thrones to be a part of Guinness World Records. I'm not going to tell my step-brother as he gets the book every year for Christmas," she said. "I can't wait to see the look on his face!"
