The newspaper has not published a topless page 3 picture since Friday and has refused to confirm or deny the reports in the Times, which says “The Sun will no longer feature topless models on page 3 after quietly droping on of the most controversial traditions in British journalism”.
But the Sun and the Times are part of the Murdoch-owned News UK stable of publications.
Campaigners on Tuesday were hopeful that they had finally persuaded the tabloid to drop the feature.
Page 3 will be in @TheSunNewspaper tomorrow in the same place it’s always been – between page 2 and page 4.
The No More Page 3 protest group wrote a message on its Facebook page which read: “We don’t know the details for sure and there’s still lots to be done. But this could be a huge step for challenging media sexism. And we are so incredibly grateful to all of you who stood up and said No More Page 3.”
