  • Fifty Shades of Grey may have dominated poll position for 22 weeks but its reign is over

    Fifty Shades of Grey has dominated the country’s reading habits (and fantasies) for the entire summer, but now the weather has turned, so has our desire to delve into the trilogy, as the third novel, Fifty Shades Freed, has been knocked off the top spot in the book charts.

    Trade magazine, The Bookseller states the culprit as The Hairy Dieters, a new collection of recipes from celebrity chefs Si King and Dave Myers aka The Hairy Bikers. The new title has ended Fifty Shades Freed 22-week reign at the top spot.

    WHERE WILL FIFTY SHADES MOVIE BE SET?

    Although it’s not slid too many places, the final novel is now sitting saucily at the second spot with the others two books taking third and fourth place in the official top 50 chart.

    And it’s hardly bad news, as we await the arrival of theFifty Shades of Grey movie we’ll be able to get our next fix there hopefully with Robert Pattinson or Ryan Gosling taking on the role of Christian Grey.
