DH Lawrence’s novel about love across the social divide tells the story of Constance Chatterley, a married woman who seeks sexual satisfaction elsewhere after her husband is wounded in the First World War and left paralysed from the waist down.

Sir Clifford Chatterley is desperate for an heir to inherit his mining fortune so is not averse to the idea of Constance sleeping with other men – as long as they are from the right social class.

The last film adaption of Lady Chatterley’s Lover was in 2015 and featured Borgias star Holliday Grainger in the title tole, Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden as her gamekeeper lover and Happy Valley’s James Norton as her husband.

However after its release some viewers complained that there wasn’t enough nudity, despite shirtless scenes from Madden, with some taking to Twitter to call it ‘tame’.

Lawrence’s book was first published in Italy in 1928 and subsequently banned in Britain, before becoming the first novel to be tested under the 1959 Obscene Publications Act for frequent use of the word ‘f***’ and its derivatives.

A full unexpurgated edition was finally released in 1960 following a six-day trial at the Old Bailey in which publishers Penguin was prosecuted for obscenity.
