Elizabeth Hurley won't let son watch show

Elizabeth Hurley won't let her son watch her new TV show.

The 49-year-old actress portrays British monarch Queen Helena in forthcoming E! show 'The Royals' and though she happily takes 12-year-old Damian - who she has with former boyfriend Steve Bing - to the set of the drama, she admits it is too "sexy" for him to tune in.

She said: "This is an extreme, sexy adventure into royalty.

"It's quite out there. For me this is like sex, drugs and rock 'n roll at Windsor Castle...

"I don't want [Damian] to read the scripts and I certainly don't want him to watch it!"

While Elizabeth plays the queen in the show, she insists she is very different to the real British monarch, Queen Elizabeth.

She added in an interview on 'Today': "There's little resemblance to Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Queen of England.

"But you never know. The beauty of this show is that we go behind closed doors."

And the 'Bedazzled' star has promised lots of "drama and glamour" for those tuning in.

She said: "You need to want to see drama and heightened stuff and a lot of glamour. If that's your bag, you might get lucky."
