LOOK away now Morah Ryan – this is an episode of Rex and the city.

Gerry Ryan’s eldest son is the star of a very raunchy music video with model Roz Purcell.

Rex (23) is certainly developing his acting career and appears in a number of blue-lit raunchy scenes with Irish model Roz Purcell in the new film.

This is not the first time that Rex has braved the acting world – he made his debut during the Dublin Fringe Festival.

The raunchy video shows Rex and Roz (22) embracing each other dressed only in their underwear.

The duo star as a Bonnie and Clyde type couple in the music video for ‘Up’, from This Club's Highlife album.

The storyline follows the gun-toting duo who are forced to shoot their way out of a sticky situation and make it to a secluded hidaway.

But while in hiding, the pair are locked in a passionate embrace and end up in bed together.

The video, which was directed by Eoghan Kidney and produced by Tim Duggan, develops into a James Bond style montage with graphic effects.

The song comes hot on the heels of the success of previous singles 'Add It Up' and 'I Won't Worry'.

Rozanna was happy to get involved as she begun starting acting classes this year.

Rex has been studying at the Gaiety School of Acting and is set to graduate later this year.

And Rex is not the only Ryan with the entertainment gene.

Gerry and Morah's eldest daughter Lottie (25) already works in broadcasting and has a slot on Colm Hayes's show on 2fm.

And their middle daughter Bonnie (19) dreams of becoming a professional singer.

His key performance in a production called The Circus Of Perseverance which was described as a "high-spirited, comedic tribute to Dublin City" won accolades.

Gerry married Morah Brennan in 1988 and they had five children together before announcing their surprise separation in 2008.

Rex opened up in an RTE documentary about Gerry’s life, saying that he was an important force and he couldn’t “have functioned without him”.
