Jaime Winstone has revealed she longed to steal the vintage designer hotpants she wore in Made In Dagenham.

The 25-year-old actress plays factory worker and aspiring model Sandra in the feel-good British comedy, based on the true story of the women working at the Dagenham Ford factory in 1968, who went on strike over a pay dispute.

Jaime told The Sun: "I wanted to take away a pair of very small hotpants with a flower power pattern as a souvenir from the film set - they were the best I've ever seen or worn but they just wouldn't let me have them.

"The hotpants were from an archive collection. They were the real thing, so no way would they let me get my hands on them and take them home.

"I can be very persuasive when I want to be, but on this occasion it all fell on deaf ears."

She added: "I'm into the clothes of those days, back in the Sixties and early Seventies, all the little dresses and pants.

"I'd have liked to live back then for the music and the fashions. The Stones in their prime, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors - I would have married their singer Jim Morrison like a shot."
