A sexy advert for Italian sportswear firm Ellesse has been deemed too racy for a key billboard site in Birmingham. The eye-catching ad, which features a gorgeous couple frolicking in the wet on a tennis court, was due to be sited on a huge hoarding along the side of the town hall. But councillors said the giant picture - part of Ellesse's new Forplay ad campaign - was not suitable for the Grade 1 listed building. It will now be placed on other billboard sites around the city instead.
