Elizabeth Hurley still has a "very annoying mummy rule" she makes her 22-year-old son stick to.

The 58-year-old actress loves spending time with her only child Damian - who she has with late former partner Steve Bing - and after the filmmaker moved back in with his mother during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 'Bedazzled' star insisted they kept the television turned off until the evening so they were able to focus on other things.

Elizabeth told People magazine: "I've always had what you say is a very annoying mommy rule in the house. We're never allowed to put the TV on until 6 p.m.

"That included lockdown! We've always stuck to that. So we try and work all day, but at 6, we'll go into the TV room."

But despite the TV rule, the pair have "had some amazing times watching television together".

Elizabeth said: "We really started over lockdown, and I wanted to show Damian a lot of the films that had been part of my growing up. So '80s and '90s films and '70s too in some cases."

Despite bonding over old shows and movies, Elizabeth and Damian - who has directed his mother in her latest movie 'Strictly Confidential', which he also wrote - love nothing more than doing "work" together".

Damian said: "We don't have a conversation that isn't about work or filming or making a movie in some aspect."

And of moving out of his London apartment during the pandemic to be with his mother, he added: “I never really left. It went straight from COVID into making this film into the edit for this film to the press for this film. My little apartment sits there, sadly.”

'Strictly Confidential' sees Elizabeth's character get intimate with Pear Chiravara's alter ego and she recently defended the controversial scene, insisting it was "safe and liberating" to film it with her son on set.

She told 'Access Hollywood': “Having him there meant that I felt safe and looked after.

“It’s kind of liberating to work with your family.”
