Liz Hurley has revealed her new show 'The Royals', which follows the life of the fictional Queen Helena, will be "extreme" and "sexy"
Elizabeth Hurley describes her new show as "sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and Windsor Castle".
The 49-year-old actress - who plays Queen Helena in new E! series 'The Royals' - has revealed the show is jam-packed with racy plots but insists her portrayal of the monarch bears no resemblance to Queen Elizabeth II.
Emphasising that her role isn't based on the 88-year-old royal, she told The Sun newspaper: "There's little resemblance. This is an extreme, sexy venture into royalty.
"For me it is sex, drugs, rock n' roll and Windsor Castle."
The controversial drama series - which also stars Joan Collins, as the Grand Duchess of Oxford, William Moseley and Vincent Regan - follows the lives of the fictional royal family and is the first scripted show to air on the US channel.
The brunette beauty believes the show will be hugely successful because of Americans fascination with the British Royal family and hopes the new series will help her to turn her career around.
Show bosses are so sure 'The Royals' will be popular amongst viewers, they have already commissioned a second series before the pilot episode has aired.
However, 'The Royals' is yet to be picked up by any British channels due to fears the UK public will find the series - which includes scenes depicting class A drug use, swearing and sex - disrespectful.
