It is an “erotic love story” featuring plenty of sex. But EL James has insisted that her new novel is completely different from Fifty Shades of Grey. The Mister is expected to be one of the publishing hits of the year when it arrives in April.

The singer has been accused of ripping off Eighties legend Paul Young’s hit Love Of The Common People for her latest single Love Made Me Do It.
