The firm released the data to mark the five year anniversary of it opening the Kindle Store in the UK.

In second place was EL James' follow-up, Fifty Shades Darker, while the third book in the series, Fifty Shades Freed, is the UK's fourth best-selling Kindle book.

The first film based on the brand, which has spawned popular licensed lingerine and sex toy ranges, also became the UK's bestselling digital download last month.
