The 29-year-old ‘Sheezus’ singer recently said she was offered a role opposite her acting brother Alfie in the series, but turned it down because she felt ‘uncomfortable’ with it.

The mum-of-three claimed she was disturbed by the scene, in which she would have portrayed her brother Alfie’s character Theon Greyjoy’s sister, Yara.

"I felt uncomfortable because I would have had to go on a horse and he would have touched me up and s**t," Lily said.

"Once they told me what was entailed, I said no thanks.”

Now Alfie Allen has said that his sister’s claims weren’t true.

"I heard about this, yeah. The only thing I'm going to say on that is that it's not true," he told Vulture.

"And also that Gemma Whelan was always their first choice for the part.

“And she's fantastic. And that's the only thing I'm going to say about that."

The scene in question involves ‘Game of Thrones’ character Theon, played by Alfie, caressing his sister, played by Gemma Whelan, as they ride horseback in season two’s ‘The Night Remembers’.

Theon later realises they're related.
