Fifty Shades Of Grey looks set to notch up another record and become the fastest selling DVD of the year so far.

The erotic drama starring Bangor actor Jamie Dornan has shifted 379,000 copies after three days on sale. If its popularity continues, it will beat this year's current top-seller, The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies, which sold 477,000 copies in its first week.

The figures were released after the latest instalment in author EL James's saucy saga smashed UK sales records, selling more than 647,000 copies in three days.

The new book, called Grey, is a retelling of the first novel in the hit series about an affair between mysterious tycoon Christian Grey and lover Anastasia Steele.
