A naked actress paraded through the streets of Oxford yesterday evening for the premiere of the new Lady Godiva film.Libby Jewson, who plays a principal part in the film, rode from the Old Parsonage hotel in Banbury road to the Odeon Cinema in Magdalen Street wearing nothing but a wig and a sash around her waist to protect her modesty.Libby Jewson admitted that she was cold but told the Oxford Mail that she was more than happy to brave the British winter for her sister Vicky Jewson, the director of the film.Vicky Jewson arrived at the premiere by more conventional means than her sister. She said that she had considered Leicester Square for the premiere, but having lived in Oxford all her life, felt that it would be a good thing for the city.Lady Godiva was an Anglo-Saxon noblewoman who, according to legend, rode naked through the streets of Coventry in order to protest about the oppressive toll her husband placed on his subjects. Lady Godiva is not played by Libby Jewson, but by Holby city star Phoebe Thomas. The film is released on Friday. By Sian Cox-Brooker

Ghana forward Jordan Ayew says the Black Stars will continue to fight in the AFCON after a late loss to Senegal in Mongomo on Monday.Ayew was the most impressive member of Ghana’s team as he put in the best display of his international career but was left disappointed with the result”In the first half we played really well but in the second half we withdrew; playing backwards and we conceded that goal. We needed to fight tonight and go home at least with a draw. A lack of concentration cost us but we are down but not dead. We will see what will happen in the next two games,” he noted.With the expected return of regular strike partner Asamoah Gyan, Ghana will be hopeful of a turnaround albeit against the heavy favourites Algeria on Friday.
