The former X Factor champ revealed she thinks Chris is the perfect candidate to play the lead role of Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of the record-breaking saucy novel.

She told MTV News: "For Christian Grey it has to be someone really hot and super smooth. Why am I just thinking of Chris Brown... maybe Chris Brown!"

Leona also said that she would like Taylor Swift to play opposite Chris as Anastasia Steele.

Meanwhile, Leona has also been playing down rumours that she is dating One Direction's Liam Payne of One Direction.

It was widely reported last month that the pair had hooked up after Liam split with girlfriend Danielle Peazer.

However, she remained tight-lipped on the situation, refusing to confirm or deny the rumours.

She told The Mirror: "I’ve learned from having relationships before that have been speculated about, it’s best not to talk about it.

"I think that’s important. Usually the other person doesn’t get a say so it’s really one-sided and unfair," she added.
