THE PRACTICE star Camryn Manheim's nanny is working in the lap of luxury, after the actress bought her a brand new LEXUS sports utility vehicle - worth a shopping $64,000 (GBP35,500).

Manheim - who plays ELLENOR FRUTT in the hit American TV show - purchased the prestigious vehicle for her employee to shuttle three-year-old son MILO around in, while the star herself has a far less impressive set of wheels.

The 43-year-old says, "I bought the car so I can have some piece of mind whenever my nanny has my son.

"And as for me, I drive a 10-year-old SAAB I bought off Hilary Swank."
