The rowers have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for good causes over the past decade by posing in the buff, their dignity preserved by artfully placed oars.

Instagram was accused of taking a stricter line on male than female nudity after suspending the account used by Warwick university rowing club to promote their charity calendars.

Following an international campaign, Instagram relented and have now restored the @warwick_rowers account.
