For your aural pleasure

50 Shades of Grey (copyright Vintage Books)If you’re off on holiday and fancy finding out what all the Fifty Shades of Grey fuss is about, Virgin Atlantic has announced a new way to experience it - without needing to pull your copy out in front of the whole plane.


Yes, the airline has announced it will be offering the saucy novel as an audio book on its flights, allowing flyers to listen to the exploits of Anastasia Steele and Mr Grey without anyone else knowing.


Of course, that’s if you can hide your blushing.


The book, which has sold over 10 million copies in a matter of months, will join a number of other audio books in over 300 hours of entertainment content as part of Virgin Atlantic’s new inflight entertainment system, JAM.


The only question now is, who should read it? Leave us your suggestions below or on our Facebook page.
