IT'S the first glimpse of Jamie Dornan as kinky billionaire Christian Grey - and it won't disappoint his legion of female fans.

The sneak preview of the hugely-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey set hearts fluttering as it was released online.

The trailer already had more than 2.5m YouTube views last night.

The clips show the gorgeous model-turned-actor looking every inch the playboy billionaire in a tailored suit as he meets his love interest in the flim for the first time.

Steamy

However, the Northern Irish hunk quickly strips off for more daring scenes in the steamy trailer and is topless for the majority of the two and a half minute clip.

Jamie (32), landed the role of Christian Grey amid strong competition form Hollywood's finest.

It is his biggest role to date and it looks like he nailed it.

He adopts an American accent to play the S&M obsessed playboy and there isn't so much as a hint of his Northern brogue to be heard.

Dakota Johnson, who plays the timid Anastasia Steele, revealed yesterday that filming the racy scenes was far from hot and steamy, despite their chemistry.

"It's not a romantic situation, it's more technical and choreographed. It's more of a task," Dakota (24) said.

"Having chemistry and trust is a big part of it. We got ourselves into situations that don't feel that natural," Jamie added.

The film has a lot to live up to after the unprecedented success of the 50 Shades trilogy penned by E L James.

It emerged earlier this week that the three books, Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Free, sold more than a combined 430,000 copies in Ireland alone since their release in 2012.

In the film, due to be released next year, former Calvin Klein model Jamie, takes to the skies in his character's private helicopter.

He also gets to grips with a leather whip in the domineering billionaires famous playroom.

Far from seducing nervous college graduates, in real life Jamie is a family man at heart.

He welcomed his first baby, a girl, last year with his wife Amelia Warner.

In his latest TV offering Jamie returns for a second season of the BBC hit show The Fall, portraying a creepy serial killer.

He filmed both projects back to back but the hard-working actor shows no signs of slowing down.
