JOURNALISTS are frantically copying and pasting from Wikipedia following the announcement of the lead actors in 50 Shades of Grey.

Tabloid ‘showbiz’ editor Julian Cook said: “I’ve pretty much worn out the ‘C’ and ‘V’ keys on my keyboard as I race against deadline to lift enough biographical data from Charlie Hunnam’s Wikipedia page.”

Journalist Emma Bradford said: “I pasted Dakota Fanning’s Wikipedia in one big chunk, including the picture. Then I added the headline ‘Young actress embarks on erotic journey’.”

“After that I went for a fag.”
