It was the question I'd been itching for years to ask Jamie Dornan, the millionaire star of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but the answer I wanted was about a hue of blue - and yellow - which were the colours of an Irish League football club.

The rumour was that the Holywood-born actor was a supporter of Bangor FC who are hardly the most glamorous football team in the world.

I first heard the claim when, with my actor's hat on, I was filming a scene for The Fall which was the locally produced TV drama that made Jamie a star.
