Elizabeth Hurley has appealed to her fans to help her name two pigs she has been given.
The brunette actress - who turned 49 years old on June 10 - took to her Twitter account to post a picture of her new pair of porkers gifted to her as a belated birthday present, but after struggling to come up with monikers for her hefty hogs, she has asked her 460,000 followers for help.
In a message attached to a picture of her sizeable swines, she wrote: ''These sweethearts are coming to live with me soon. A belated birthday present from a dear friend. Help with names? (sic)''
One Twitter user, who uses the handle JamesJourn, came up with a particularly clever pork-based suggestion to name her prized piglets after the actors Kevin Bacon and Jon Hamm, in a comical nod to the bacon and ham references in the stars' monikers.
He wrote: ''Surely they've got to be called Kevin Bacon and Jon Hamm? #porkers (sic)''
Another Twitter user made reference to one of Elizabeth's former partners Hugh Grant, suggesting: ''Hugh Grunt?''
One comical tweeter poked fun at another of Elizabeth's exes, Shane Warne, by suggesting she could name one of the huge hogs after the retired cricketer.
He wrote: ''One should be Shane....for sure! (sic)''
Elizabeth's request even attracted celebrity interest as E.L. James - who wrote the hugely successful 'Fifty Shades of Grey' book, which has since been turned into a film - wrote: ''Block and Tackle?''
The idea clearly made the 'Austin Powers' star laugh as she replied: ''Ha Ha. good luck with the movie. Can't wait to see it xx (sic)''
Following the many suggestions, Elizabeth returned to the social networking site to thank her fans for their ideas before going away to think carefully about her big pig decision.
She tweeted: ''Many thanks for all your suggestions for naming my little piggies. I'll let you know the verdict.''
