Los Angeles  - Rita Ora kept forgetting her lines whilst filming her scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey.

The 23-year-old singer - who landed the role of Mia Grey in the erotic drama - had someone feeding her script to her through an earpiece because nerves got the better of her and she couldn't remember her words.

Speaking to Access Hollywood, she said: "I had to have someone in my ear on set telling me what to say before I said it because I was honestly like so nervous I forgot everything that I had learnt."

However, the blonde beauty credits her co-star Dakota Johnson - who plays the leading lady Anastasia Steele - for helping her get over her first-time acting fears.

She explained: "She's a great friend of mine and she really eased me, and she was really nice to take care of me."

Meanwhile, the RIP hitmaker - who has read all three novels by EL James - feels incredibly proud to have been chosen to take part in the movie adaptation, which is being directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.

She said: "The movie is as visually close as it can be [to the book]. I think the actors are phenomenal in this and I'm just kind of honoured to be on the same wavelength as them.

"This being my first movie, it's pretty awesome."

Fifty Shades of Grey is set for release next year.
