TOWIE’s Sam and Joey give Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele a run for their money!

It's the book that everyone is talking about and now it seems that Joey Essex and Sam Faiers are fans of the raunchy page turner too.

In an interview with Now magazine this week, the couple posed for a photo shoot inspired by the kinky bestseller.

Dressed in, well not an awful lot, the TOWIE couple embraced their inner S&M, with Joey blindfolding Sam in one photo, while brandishing a riding crop in another.

Oo-er!

The couple may have looked the part but when asked about their bedroom antics Sam admitted that they couldn't be further from the characters in the infamous book.

Sam told Now: "Even in the bedroom with Joey, I'm always in big knickers. I'm more cute than sexy siren, but on occasions I can be."

"I feel sexier when I wear something that covers me a bit. I'm quite confident, but I don't dress to be sexy. I prefer things that flatter my body."

The on/off couple finally managed to put their problems behind them during the last series of TOWIE and are now looking to the future.

Joey admitted: "We both want kids. Sam would have kids today, but I think we should wait."

The couple also reignited a rivalry with TOWIE couple Mario and Lucy during the interview following Sam's accusation that Mario had been unfaithful.

Joey adamantly said: "They seem loved-up, but there are rumours. I don't have a problem with them but I'll always stand by Sam."
