Elizabeth Hurley shared a striking nude photo because she denied reports that she will be filming a reality series with her son Damian.
To ensure she got the full attention of her two million Instagram followers on Sunday, the 55-year-old model accompanied the post with a completely naked photo.
Sitting on bales of hay, the Royals star protected her modesty by posing strategically, wrapping her arms around her legs, which were pulled up to her chest.
In addition to the nude photo, the model wrote, ‘Hear it from the horse’s mouth, my son @ damianhurley1 and I have absolutely NO plans to shoot a’ Waltons-esque reality TV show ‘at home.
‘I mean!! Whoever the ‘friend’ (or bored journalist) is who is leaking these fictional tidbits, you are ridiculous’.
Her denial came after the report from The Sun that she was about to film her own ‘home in the country’ series with son Damian on their £ 6 million 13-bedroom estate in Herefordshire.

A source had told The sun: ‘Liz has a huge and loyal social media following and she knows she would love to see more of her home life.
She is also looking forward to participating in a project with Damian. It would be a lot of fun. ‘
They added: ‘While Liz is very glamorous, she’s also committed to showing people how tough she is. She is good at DIY and loves gardening. It will be an eye opening. ‘

The model has spent the coronavirus lockdowns with her son, 18, mom Angela, 80, and older sister Kate, in their lavish £ 6million mansion, and previously compared the experience with an episode of The Waltons.
The actress spent 16 weeks at the Herefordshire estate in a group of nine, including her older sister Kate, son Damian, mother Angela and vulnerable friends.
When Liz appeared on Lorraine in October, she said to replacement Christine Lampard at the time, ‘It was just like The Waltons! We had nine, but I was the only one who left in 16 weeks to do a brief robbery in the stores. ‘
The beloved family drama The Waltons ran from 1971 to 1981 (with three consecutive film spin-offs) and revolved around the life of the close-knit clan on a mountain in Virginia during the Depression and World War II.

The show was such an example to American family life at the time, that President George Bush even said in a speech in 1992 that he wanted families in the United States to be “more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons.”
Elizabeth revealed that her household went back to basics for lockdown, as did The Waltons, explaining, ‘We all stayed safe and then we just had to keep going, find a way to make it work.
‘There was manual labor, no TV was allowed until 6 p.m. We were all outside – we had beautiful weather in the UK – sweeping, cutting, attacking things with a chainsaw, making the outside beautiful, growing vegetables …
‘We have all become healthier. We ate quite a bit, but there was also manual labor! ‘
Liz added, “We were very nervous about health, there were older women and a friend with low immunity who needed to be kept safe. We were just nervous and scared. ‘
Despite spending four months at home, the group had plenty of room as they locked themselves in Liz’s 13-bed mansion that she bought with her ex Shane Warne in 2012.
The sprawling Georgian estate, which is now Elizabeth’s primary residence, also features five bathrooms and a private lake.
During the lockdown, Liz said she felt “ incredibly lucky ” to be in her mansion with her family during the time of social detachment.

She wrote in an Instagram post: ‘In these scary times, I feel incredibly lucky to live in the countryside and have a lot of outdoor space.
In addition to my son, seven other people live with me, including my 79-year-old mother and her sister – also in her late 70s – and one of my best friends who is in the highest risk group with severe respiratory problems.
‘Keeping everyone as safe (and fed) as possible is a full-time job.
‘We all have the utmost admiration for our wonderful NHS staff and do everything we can not to increase their burden.’
