The Anonymous Widower

Erica Roe

Britain’s most famous streaker is Erica Roe who ran across the pitch at Twickenham during an England Australia match on 2nd January 1982.  She was mentioned on BBC Breakfast this morning. According to her Wikipedia entry, she and her family are farming organic sweet potatoes in Portugal.

I wonder who the gent in the left of the photograph is?  And note Erica’s belt.  We all had belts like that at some time, if you were born before 1960.  I haven’t seen one in years.

Is that a ciggie in her mouth?  How very 1980’s.

  3. Snake belts? I was born a long time after 1960, but they were still all the rage when I was at school.

    • It’s funny, but every day someone looks for this page. She is certainly remembered and how many of today’s Z-listers will still be searched for in years to come?

      • I agree…she was a symbol of the naughtyness that we still enjoyed in those days…today this picture would only be remarkable because of the apparent ciggarette thats she’s smoking…and yes…who will search for Jody Marsh or Jordan in 35 years time….Titter ye not…LOL

  4. I see you’re a magician. I hope business isn’t disappearing in these times.

    I once met a lady, who was one of the first to be sawn in half on stage.

    • Shame, ‘Billy’ – she also had an awesome pair of thighs under those too-tight jeans! (saw them in all their glory about a week later when she was snapped sprawled out on beach somewhere (still topless, and still with a reefer in her mouth!) Bet she can still turn heads, and is still remembered as was mentioned on the BBC this am!

  10. Hi, a quick note for whoever may still be interested in current news on Erika Roe.

    Erika is publishing a nude calendar for the coming year of 2015.

    Why now, you may be asking? The answer is, why not? 🙂

    The photographs are intimate, natural and carefree as they were taken by her daughter Imogen.

    Not being a believer of the fake airbrushed images we all have to look at in our day to day lives, the photographs in the calendar are touch-up free and demonstrate a woman who is confident and at ease in her body.

    Part of the profit is being donated towards a chosen breast cancer research charity after Erika lost two family members to cancer.

    You may purchase the calendar and read more about the project here:

    And no, this is not a joke 😉

    • Well, let’s all hope three years on from that last post that the calendar ‘flew off the shelves’ as they say and made a bomb for that breast cancer charity! (It’s probably a ‘Collector’s item’ by now I should think!
      As for the dear lady herself…I hope she’s still well and happy. How she’s etched on so many minds (including my own!) over all these years – this surely must be some sort of a ‘record’ for who was at the time the pic was taken a completely ‘unknown’ person until she made her few minutes of fame at ‘Twicks’. Vive le Sporte!
