Jamie Dornan was accompanied by his real-life leading lady, Amelia Warner, at the premiere of Fifty Shades Darker on Wednesday night. The actor, who has two children with his wife, walked the red carpet in London, channelling his character Christian Grey in a pale grey suit. His wife Amelia looked stunning in a monochrome outfit, walking hand-in-hand with her husband.
The couple were joined by Jamie's co-star and on-screen lover, Dakota Johnson, who plays Ana Steele in the popular franchise. The pair opened up about their working relationship and being reunited on set. "It's brilliant; Dakota and I are so close now," said Jamie, 34. "We're great friends; it makes everything so easy, much easier to get through the sex scenes. We have a deep understanding of each other and respect for each other. That's essential."

Dakota, who wore a black and cream elegant dress, added: "Being back on set with Jamie was so much fun. It's such a lovely thing to be able to work with someone you know, that you're close with." Jamie also spoke about the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey, promising fans: "It's sexier, it moves at a faster pace, there are other characters who are introduced that really ruffle things up and add that thriller aspect to it. I think it gives you everything you wanted from the end of the first one. I think we deliver."

Rita Ora, who plays Christian Grey's adopted younger sister Mia in the thriller, also walked the red carpet. The 26-year-old singer showed off her curves in a navy evening gown that featured a daring sequined bust. Other stars who stepped out for the premiere included Lucy Mecklenburgh, Ella Eyre, Made in Chelsea's Louise Thompson and author E L James.
