It wasn’t the hot air in the House of Commons chamber that left MPs feeling all flustered recently. Rather, the scantily clad Warwick Rowers had the corridors of power steaming up after a cheeky photoshoot with Labour rising star Dawn Butler.

 

The Shadow Secretary of State for Equalities invited a pair of the infamous rowing team to her Westminster office to hear all about their annual naked charity calendar, which officially went on sale this week.

 

 

Warwick University’s men’s rowing team have been getting their kit off for Sport Allies, the charity that aims to combat homophobia in sport.

 

Team members presented the Labour MP and her colleagues with a new report highlighting homophobia in sport. It calls on Parliament to back a campaign urging sporting bodies and authorities to ban homophobic language. The campaign has won the backing of Dawn Butler and other senior MPs who were handed signed copies of the calendar.​

 

An insider said: “Parliament can be known for its frosty atmosphere but the boys certainly warmed things up. There were a few raised eyebrows but there was definitely no shortage of takers for the saucy calendar. It is all for a good cause after all."
