Elizabeth regularly posts snaps while wearing just a bikini, including without a hat, but told Grazia: ‘I regret ever sunbathing and now use SPF30 and wear a big sunhat.

‘I’ve lost count of how many of my contemporaries have had cancerous cells removed.’

She launched her eponymous brand Elizabeth Hurley Beach at Harrods 15 years ago, and regularly poses for professional photo shoots, as well as being snapped by her sister Kate and 18-year-old son Damian for the range.

The mother-of-one added: ‘Lockdown was liberating because I didn’t constantly check emails and panic about deadlines.

‘I only washed my hair when I needed to shoot some beachwear or support a charity.’

She went on: ‘I loathe staying indoors when it’s good weather, but I’m lucky to have some land, so I did at least 40 hours’ manual labour a week and bullied everyone else into helping me.’
