Elizabeth Hurley was determined to get her message out there on Tuesday when she fought back against backlash over her recent snowy photoshoot, which left little to the imagination. 

The model, 54, was branded "thirsty" and an "outrage" by outspoken Piers Morgan who leapt to the assumption that Elizabeth's teenage son, Damian, 18, was behind the camera for her latest photos.

In the images in question, Elizabeth was posing braless in a stunning underwear shot, complete with a winter coat to cover her modesty.

She reposted the image to set the record straight and while she didn't mention Piers by name she hinted at his angst over the image. 

"Far be it for me to suggest the tabloids get their facts muddled," she wrote. "But these pics were in fact taken by my 80 year old mother. Not entirely sure if that puts minds at rest or not."
