"Everyone laughed when I said I was moving to the country," the Daily Express quoted her as saying. "But I wouldn't mind betting that there's less lovemaking in the city than there is in the country because it's just, well, sexier here. When English people think of the country, lovemaking is never far from their minds," she added.
She appeared to be very impressed with the fluffy rugs that country types lay in front of their "sexy" open fires. "No prizes for guessing why they're there," she said.
Hurley also seems to be quite impressed with the bucolic charms of local menfolk.
"The builders who did my stable conversion were so gorgeous," she said. "Or take the shelf-fillers in my local supermarket. My son's riding teacher is tall, dark and handsome," she added.
She also appears to have a crush on the Prince of Wales, with whom she's developing an organic food range. "I've long been his greatest fan. No one has ever looked better in hunting or polo gear," she said.
