Ellie Goulding has yet to watch Fifty Shades Of Grey - even though she recorded a song for the soundtrack.

Goulding is nominated for a Golden Globe for her song Love Me Like You Do, which is featured in the 2015 erotic romantic drama film.

When Jonathan Ross welcomed her to his show and admitted he had not seen the film, Goulding had her own admission to make.

The singer, 29, mouthed: "Nor did I," adding: "W hich is awful."

Actor Steve Carell, who joined Goulding on the Jonathan Ross Show alongside TV chef Gordon Ramsay, joked: "I lived it."

Ramsay said his wife had encouraged him to watch it, adding: " Tana showed me it on her iPad, certain sequences ... She said 'Take your time.'"

The film, based on the 2011 novel by EL James, stars Dakota Johnson as college graduate Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as young business magnate Christian Grey, who has unusual sexual desires. The two begin a sadomasochistic relationship.

Goulding also revealed she was nervous about the idea of giving an acceptance speech if she wins the award.

She said: "I'm a terrible public speaker, I don't understand it. You'd think because I perform, I'd be able to get something together but I'm rubbish ... I just can't do it, public speaking just really isn't my thing.

"I have a moment of genius when I say something I think 'God how did I come up with that' then I go back to realising what I'm actually doing and then just waffle and say the same things and I see people starting to judge me and be like 'hurry up'."

After teasing from Ross, the singer also admitted to a crush on fellow guest Ramsay.

"Yes okay fine, yeah," she said. "He takes care of himself, if I really think about it, it's because he keeps fit and I love that. But I shouldn't say this, it's naughty, no!"
