Emma paired her kimono with a white dress and ruby red heels, and the blonde beauty was back in a brunette wig for filming, with the locks styled in a curly bob to reflect the 1920s timeline.

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.

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’.

In the 2015 adaptation, Lord Chatterley grants his wife a divorce so she can marry Mellors. But in the novel he refuses and Constance goes to live with her sister.

Other adaptions include the 1993 BBC series which starred Sean Bean and Joely Richardson and was much steamier.

Lady Chatterley’s Lover was also brought to the big screen in 1981, with Sylvia Kristel and Nicholas Clay having leading roles.

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.
