It's the star's first movie since Fifty Shades, which was released in June and smashed box office records around the world.

Matthew visited Dakota on set back in April – proving rumours they had split just weren't true. Or maybe they had briefly separated before getting back together. The actress has always been quite private about her personal life, declining to mention her musician beau in any interviews.

As well as working on How To Be Single, Dakota will soon be back at work on Fifty Shades as the sequel has been confirmed.

Based on the second novel in EL James' erotic trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker, the book has been adapted for the big screen by EL's husband Niall Leonard.

As well as reprising her role as Anastasia Steele, co-star Jamie Dornan will return as Christian Grey.

We. Can't. Wait.
