In this week's A-List Insider:

Fans left shocked after a number of characters were killed off in the Game of Thrones series 5 finale, Zayn Malik's new song is leaked and Chris Evans replaces Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear.

Game of Thrones *SPOILER ALERT*

Some Game of Thrones fans predicted it, but nothing could have prepared the majority of viewers for Jon Snow's death in the season 5 finale episode.

Just two weeks after we watched him escape death during the battle with that White Walker in episode 8, the beloved character was killed by members of the Night's Watch, with Ollie delivering the final blow.

Fans vented anger, disbelief and shock on social media and within minutes of the show ending Game of Thrones was trending world worldwide.

So will Jon Snow be brought back to life? According to Kit Harington – who plays the illegitimate child of Ned Stark – the answer is no.

"I've been told I'm dead. I'm dead. I'm not coming back next season. So that's all I can tell you, really," he told Entertainment Weekly.

Zayn Malik song 'No Type' leaks

Over in the world of music, former One Direction star Zayn Malik has been left fuming after a solo record was leaked.

Directioners were sent into a frenzy after the song, which is a cover of US hip-hop act Rae Sremmurd's 2014 single No Type, emerged online.

Although fans were excited about getting the remix, featuring UK rapper Mic Righteous, producer and close friend of Malik Naughty Boy was not impressed.

He blasted Mic Righteous in a Twitter rant and accused him of "stealing" the song from a hard drive.

Mic Righteous hit back by claiming that he leaked the track for Malik's benefit as he is allegedly prohibited from releasing any solo material for another two years.

Does anyone smell a publicity stunt?

Chris Evans in the Top Gear hotseat

And finally, after weeks of speculation Chris Evans has been unveiled as the new host on Top Gear.

The BBC reported that the presenter will replace Jeremy Clarkson as the star of the motoring show.

They also revealed that there will be an all-new line-up, meaning that Richard Hammond and James May will not be involved.

Evans, who presents BBC Radio 2's Breakfast Show, said he was "thrilled", describing the motoring show as his "favourite programme of all time" and promising: "I will do everything I possibly can to respect what has gone on before and take the show forward."

You may remember that Clarkson was axed from the show after a ruckus with a producer during an argument about catering arrangements during location filming in Newcastle.

The question is with Evans now in the driver's seat instead of Clarkson, will you be watching?
