Elizabeth Hurley set tongues wagging on Saturday when she shared a super sexy photograph on social media.

The 55-year-old actress and model took to Instagram to post a throwback from a trip to the Maldives earlier this year.

In the picture, Liz is perched on the edge of a cream sofa and wearing a sexy mint green swimsuit from her very own range.

Leaving little to the imagination thanks to the garment's plunging neckline, Liz clutched a large straw hat and left her hair down in loose waves as she smiled for the camera.

The Bedazzled actress captioned the post: "Taken just before lockdown at the glorious @chevalblancrandheli in the Maldives. If you fancy a treat, use code EXT30 at checkout at www.elizabethhurley.com and get 30% off all our one pieces, including those already in Special Offers."

A second person said: "Stunning beauty, you look gorgeous and awesome smile," while a third commented: "Amazing how youthful you continue to keep yourself.

"Are you sure your not 35 yrs old still? You can not possible be 55. Im 50 and look 43 but wow you have me beat in youthfulness."

The 55-year-old star is no stranger to posting sexy snaps on social media

The mum-of-one's sexy post comes after she admitted it's been "hard" raising her son Damian as a single, working mother.

Liz, who previously dated Hugh Grant and was married to Arun Nayar for four years, gave birth to her son Damian in 2002 following a relationship with the late American businessman Steve Bing, who died earlier this year.

When asked about being a working mother, the actress and model said: "It's ludicrously hard to try and do. We all try. We all succeed in places, and we often feel like we failed in places."

Liz went on to say that she has always put her son above "work" and her "social life".

"I made a decision when my son was born that he was going to come first, come what may. Above work, above social life, above anything," she explained.

"He was going to be my number one, which he has been, and remains so.

"I think somehow when you have a clear vision ahead then you’ll do whatever you can to try to make that happen," she added.
