Fifty Shades of Grey author E L James scooped another literary prize last night after being awarded the Specsavers Popular Fiction Book of the Year Award.

The American author picked up the gong alongside Miranda Hart, David Walliams and Clare Balding who also won prizes for their latest tomes.

E L James' brand of 'mummy porn' beat out popular authors Bernard Cornwell, Kate Mosse and Dorothy Koomson for the biggest award of the night.

Sports presenter and Olympic wonder woman, Clare Balding, won in the autobiography category for her incredible book My Animals and Other Family.

She may be the queen of the baking world, but Mary Berry couldn't quite retain her crown as the recipe book reigning monarch. The Great British Bake Off host lost out to The Hairy Bikers, Si King and Dave Myers.
