When fans of gay Star Trek star George Takei insisted he would have a special connection with erotic bestseller Fifty shades of Grey, the US actor decided to investigate.

E L James’s book is the fastest selling paperback of all time, beating J K Rowling’s Harry Potter.

And Takei happily indulges his fans by reading passages of the saucy novel in the comfort of his own home.

Only this private reading is for an audience of over 900,000 on YouTube.
