The designer is hooked on the story of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele

Victoria Beckham is the latest celebrity to admit reading the erotic Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy.

The designer is such a fan of the raunchy novels that she recommended them to her mum Jackie Adams, 64 – leading to some rather awkward conversations around the dinner table.

‘I’m halfway through the second one,’ Victoria, 38, writes in US Glamour.

‘I even bought my mum the book. But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject.

‘I don’t really want to talk to my mother about S&M.’

Victoria joins stars including Amy Childs, Natalie Cassidy and Jodie Marsh in picking up 50 Shades, which tells the story of college graduate Anastasia Steele and manipulative billionaire Christian Grey, who asks her to become his ‘submissive’ in his ‘red room of pain’.

It’s not just the girls who are getting hooked – One Direction singer Niall Horan has also had a flick through the book. 

‘A girl gave it to me the other day!’ Niall, 18, told the Daily Mirror.

‘I read the first page and put it down. But it was good.’
