Dakota Johnson apparently helped pick her new co-star in Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The Fall star Jamie Dornan has signed up to play billionaire Christian Grey in the movie, after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the saucy role.

Speaking before his name was officially announced, producer Michael De Luca told E! News that US actress Dakota had been a "rock".

Comparing the actress to her Fifty Shades alter-ego, he added: "She's just so Anastasia Steele. She's the best partner a producer could have.

"She's helping us look through the candidates to see which chemistry kind of captures our attention."

Fifty Shades writer EL James later confirmed former model Jamie's casting in the movie, directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

The author tweeted: "Stow your twitchy palms ladies.... our man is here. Welcome to #TeamFifty @JamieDornan1 x"

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

It isn't healthy to be emotionally dependent. Becoming more self reliant should be your first order of business, especially if you're in a troubled relationship. Your partner may balk at your decision to acquire new skills, get a job or accumulate property. Pay no attention to their complaints. The sooner you carve out a niche for yourself, the happier you will be. Slowly but surely, the balance of power will be restored to your union. It's time to come into your own.More
