It's only a start - but at the age of 10, Elizabeth Hurley's son Damian has already followed his mother on to the screen by filming scenes as an extra for Neighbours.

The 47-year-old actress and model revealed on Twitter that the youngster had been given a part in the Aussie soap.

It is filmed in Melbourne where Hurley is staying with her fiance Shane Warne, the former Australian cricketer.

She first wrote: "My son totally overexcited as he's visiting the Neighbours set today."


Two hours later she added: "My son in heaven - he got to be an extra in Neighbours today."

Miss Hurley made a number of appearances on TV and in films before gaining a higher profile when she wore a revealing black Versace dress to accompany then boyfriend Hugh Grant to the premiere of Four Weddings And A Funeral in 1994.

She went on to appear in Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery and Bedazzled.

Damian is her son by the American businessman and film producer Steve Bing.

Her four-year marriage to businessman Arun Nayar ended in divorce last year.
