After Phillip Schofield suggested that Liz Hurley's son, Damien, might have had champagne edited out of his hand in a photo, the actress is forced to respond...
So the This Morning interview with Elizabeth Hurley was a teeny bit awkward earlier today.
Liz joined regular hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield to chat about the latest breast cancer campaign by Estee Lauder- but when conversation soon turned to her son, it all got a bit uncomfortable to watch.
You see, Phillip brought up a photo of her 14-year-old son which was posted on social media which at the time, caused a bit of controversy.
In the photo, Damien is seen posing next to his mum at a swanky looking garden party, except, it seemed that something had suspiciously been Photoshopped out of his hand…
‘We think he was holding a glass of bubbly and it was Photoshopped out. Is that true?’ Philip grilled.
Looking seriously uncomfortable, Liz attempted to brush of Phillip’s out-of-the-blue comment by saying: ‘Well I can’t see a thing from here, I am completely blind.’
Holly and Phil then went on to joke that they imagined it must have been champagne, before flashing up a second image showing Damien, again, in another image where it looked like a piece of bread had been Photoshopped on to cover something else he was holding.
When Liz couldn’t avoid answering the question any longer, the 51-year-old said by way of explanation: ‘I think he was handed a glass of champagne, he is not allowed to drink especially not if I’m watching.
‘I think he probably held it to join in, probably…’
We’re not going to lie, the whole thing made for pretty uncomfortable viewing, with the interview ending with Holly and Phil giving a nervous laugh before the scene quickly cut to an ad break.
Well handled, Hurley.
