Could it be time to join the Fifty Shades of Grey club?

VERITY LUSH: Yet another example of distasteful American influence sweeping the UK

Have your say

There’s only one book that everyone is talking about. Or should I say only one book us ladies are talking about – and that is the highly acclaimed and highly controversial Fifty Shades of Grey.

Now, I haven’t read it – yet – no, seriously I haven’t, but I’m not going to pretend I’m not intrigued.

The media hype surrounding this book has caused such a storm that it’s now become this dirty little secret that women up and down the country can share.

I was in Asda the other day when a customer walked sheepishly up to a staff member and whispered: ‘Have you got the know, the book?’

She knew exactly what she meant and they shared a little giggle.

I need to join this club.
