We were a little sad when we found out that Charlie Hunnam had pulled out of playing the lead role in the big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

But today we bring you good news - Studio Universal and director Sam Taylor-Johnson have found a replacement in the form of actor and model Jamie Dornan.

Dornan has been in many other notable films such as Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, as well as the critically-acclaimed TV show The Fall, in which he plays a serial killer terrorising the streets of Belfast, opposite Gillian Anderson.

He has also had a lucrative career as a model and has worked on campaigns for various fashion houses, including Calvin Klein, Christian Dior and Armani.

The Northern Irish actor is set to star alongside Dakota Johnson, who will be playing Anastasia Steele.

Fifty Shades of Grey is set to be released in August 2014.
