Asked if she was ever a bookworm, Childs said: "Well, no, but I do love reading. I'm reading Fifty Shades of Grey at the moment.

"I'm interested because the guy's so powerful and the girl's only 22, the same age as me. I know the book is a lot about sexual positions but honestly, at times I just skip the sex scenes."

Andy Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears recently admitted that Fifty Shades of Grey left her "cold".

She explained that she was a much bigger fan of Jilly Cooper, adding: "My all-time favourite author/general superhero is Jilly Cooper; although to label her as 'summer reading' does her a complete disservice."
