Newtalk presenter and former rugby pundit George Hook has revealed it's his dream to write erotic fiction.

Speaking to guest on his show, The Right Hook, on Friday, he told guest James Dempsey, "I have always wanted to write an erotic novel".

They were discussing Fifty Shades of Grey and the popularity of fanfiction when George made the admission.

He added, "I have to say it is one of my great undone challenges... I don't want to parachute jump at age 90... or climb Mount Everest or any of that kind of stuff... I want to publish an erotic novel."

During an interview two years ago, Jilly Cooper, author of racy novels, encouraged George to write a "sexy novel about rugby" and at the time he said he had "all the sex planned".

On The Right Hook he went on to say that he had, in fact, already written an erotic novel.

"I made a stab at it but it as rejected by the publisher," he said.  "It was great.  It started in Warsaw, this young Polish girl and four members of the German Army...."

Joking with James he said that they should collaborate on an erotic novel in the fanfiction genre by charting the adventures of the character of Kalinda (played by Archie Panjabi) from The Good Girl.

"The Futher Adventures of Kalinda," said Hook.  "I can describe her, the thigh high boots, the six inch heels, the fact that she's of a rather voracious sexual nature. 

"But now Kalinda, instead of being an Indian girl, we'll move her to Warsaw, she'll be the daughter of the one who was despoiled in 1945 in Warsaw and she will be carrying out a campaign against the sons and daughters of the four guys who despoiled her mother in Kalinsky Street in Warsaw."
