Top marks again to star contributor Martyn for spotting that the model in this 1982 Iron Maiden photoshoot bears an uncanny resemblance to 80s spanking video star Linzi Drew!
Is that model in the Iron Maiden feature – none other than Linzi Drew? Looks quite a lot like her in the otk photo, less so in the standing up shot, right sort of body shape that’s for sure! 1982 would be about the right time.
I think a close look at the pictures in this post proves that he’s right.
The left shot comes from Linzi’s Warden’s End shoot for Janus. The features are identical right down to the eye make up. The style and colour of the hair looks different, but the cover shot for soft porn mag Smart (left below) shows that she did once sport a chestnut coloured 1980s perm.
During a varied career in the UK sex industry Linzi worked as a stripper, glamour model and porn actress and was at one time the editor of Penthouse magazine. At her height, in the 1980s, she appeared nude on a monthly basis in Club International.
Linzi had minor roles in a handful of mainstream films including An American Werewolf in London. She also appeared bare-bottomed on the cover of Roger Waters’ solo album The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking. (By this time she had gone blonde!)
But it is for her appearances in Janus that we know her best. I remember the classic Warden’s End photo shoot (and video) had an instant wow factor. It stood out because of the attractiveness and poise of the model who looked like a page three girl – which I now know she was!.
The idea of a traffic warden coming in off Old Compton Street to give a ticket to the assistant in the Janus shop was amusing, original and, just about, believable! The authentic uniform gave added realism and massive extra sex appeal too

Linzi appeared in another video called The Cane and Mr Abel. Produced by Harrison Marks, it was one of the first UK titles to be released in the new video cassette format.
And it was the first spanking movie that Martyn ever owned!
Linzi plays a PE teacher who illegally canes a very attractive sixth form girl on her bare bottom for writing a malicious note about her. She gets caught and in turn gets spanked by the headmaster. I just couldn’t believe I was watching it on my own TV! It cost a whopping £50 back in 1985 but I thought it was the best 50 quid I had ever spent! How times have changed!
