THERE is no more famous streaker in the UK than Erika Roe after she cemented her name in rugby history back in 1982.
Erika was nicknamed "The Twickenham Streaker" after her topless stunt during an England match over 40 years ago.
Erika stormed the Twickenham pitch during England's matchup against Australia offering extra entertainment to the paying fans.
As if the 15-11 win for England wasn't enough, spectators witnessed Erika take off her bra and top and run on to the pitch at half time.
Speaking to the Daily Star she said: "At half-time, the crowd appeared bored by a man dressed as a gorilla trying to entertain them, then someone shouted, ‘Doesn’t someone streak now?’
"For me, it was like a red rag to a bull. Totally unplanned, I removed my top and bra and streaked across the ground with a cigarette in my mouth before being chased by a policeman and hauled off to the police station."

Erika, now 66, was just 24 years old at the time and recalls the decision to streak completely changing her life.
"What happened next gave my life a 360° turn and I couldn’t stop the ball rolling. I was only 24 and I can’t explain why I streaked." She explained.
"The phone rang for three years non-stop with offers such as hotel, pub and shop openings, new businesses and rugby club dinner invitations.
“I appeared on breakfast TV with David Frost, lots of TV shows alongside stars such as Kenneth Williams and the policemen who escorted me off the rugby ground."
