Liz Hurley has set the record straight when it comes to recent reality TV rumours in the most Liz Hurley way possible.

The 55-year-old star shut down speculation that she and her son Damian, 18, were shooting their own Kardashian-inspired reality show by posting a nude photo on Instagram. As one does!

Liz responds to reality TV rumours

The stunning snap certainly attracted attention and allowed Liz to refute claims by an unnamed 'insider' that she had agreed to give cameras an "eye-opening gander" at her life in the English countryside.

A story credited to British tabloid the Sun on Sunday purported that the Bedazzled actor had signed on to produce a 'series of reality-style videos' to be shared on her social media channels where she boasts millions of fans.

"Although Liz is very glam, she’s also determined to show people how hardy she is," the Sun's source claimed. "She’s great at DIY and she loves gardening."

The story appears to have been taken offline since.


It's perhaps fitting, then, that Liz chose to clap back at the 'ridiculous' reports by posting a throwback nude shot by photographer Jonathan Bookallil that saw her perched on a haystack in a barn.

In her caption, Liz took the tabloid to town over its 'abzuuuurd' story and made it very clear that she and Damian wouldn't be opening the doors to their 13-bedroom Georgian mansion anytime soon.

"Abzuuuurd stories in our illustrious press today," she wrote. "Hear it from the horse’s mouth, my son @damianhurley1 and I are most definitely NOT planning to shoot a ‘Waltons-style reality TV show’ at home.

"I mean!! Whoever the ‘friend’ (or bored journalist) is, who’s leaking these fictional tidbits, you are ridiculous."

We have a slight inkling that Liz's post may have disappointed some of her ardent fans who eagerly follow her every move both on her personal Instagram account and the account for her swimwear line, Elizabeth Hurley Beach.

Along with sharing numerous jaw-dropping bikini pics from holidays past, Liz treats her followers to behind-the-scenes looks at her current acting projects and her role as ambassador for Estée Lauder as well as happy snaps with her model son Damian. 

Liz raised Damian on her own following a bitter paternity dispute with her ex-boyfriend, the late millionaire Steve Bing. Bing died by suicide last year, though Liz shared that they had recently mended their relationship.
