By Telegraph reporters. A female university rowing club who caused a row last year over their racy charity calendar have defied critics to bare all in an even more daring follow-up in which they pose completely nude. The students from the University of Warwick Rowing Society caused controversy last year after their calendar was branded "tacky" and "sexist".

However, this year, the men's calendar can consider themselves well and truly surpassed as, while the men's calendar has sold out, it was only the women's that made national news headlines.
This Sunday, I had the honour of spending a couple of hours with some brave, brave rugby players who were doing a very noble thing for charity. They had agreed to pose for a charity calendar. Oh yes, did I mention?
