Jamie Dornan has opened up about his track record of playing rather creepy characters.

The 32-year-old cemented his fame after appearing as the terrifying serial killer Paul Spector in The Fall. But Jamie said that after his role as sadomasochistic Christian Grey, in 50 Shades Of Grey, he’s found himself quite enjoying the stranger roles.

“It kinda worries me sometimes how comfortable I am in that zone,” Jamie told the Guardian. “I consider myself quite light-hearted, pretty easy-going, and I keep playing sick psychopath b******s!”

More news!

    And he does keep doing it.

    Last month it was confirmed that The Fall was coming back for a third series (so we may finally find out what happened!) and Jamie is set to star in the next instalment of 50 Shades.

    Although nothing’s been confirmed, it’s rumoured Jamie will earn a seven figure salary for the sequel but, when he was asked about the next film, he was coy and simply said: “The plan was always for [Sam Taylor-Johnson] to do them, so hopefully that will happen. But I don't think it's going to be imminent.”

    We just want more Jamie on scree, ASAP.

    The Irish actor is also touted to be playing the lead role in new film, Anthropoid. The flick is based around the 1942 assassination attempt on SS officer Reinhard Heydrich and it’s rumoured Jamie will play a Czech soldier.

    We can't wait.

    The former Pussycat Doll decided to go for fifty shades of gold instead of grey, with her blazer unfortunately looking like a child got their hands on some metallic Sharpies. Looks like she lost a button on the way there too, poor love

    Eeeek. We like her sleek bob very much, but those diamante ring details are a bit too Walford for our liking

    It was all about the plunge for Jamelia. We're not so keen on the boob-revealing frock but we heart the shoes
