The young model is the son of Liz’s older sister Kate Curran, 54, and is very close to his famous aunt and her son Damian Hurley.
Liz was spotted striding through Heathrow airport on Friday morning as she rushed to be back with her family.
It’s thought Miles was stabbed ‘several times’ during the altercation, with a source telling the Sun His family feared the worst. Fortunately, it seems the knife missed his vital organs.
Mirror Online has contacted Liz’s rep for comment.
Miles started his modelling career at the age of 13 when a scout spotted him working on a stall in London’s Camden Market and signed him to Next Model Management.
He launched his career after taking Liz’s surname over his mum’s lesser known one, and landed modelling work with Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Carvalli.
In 2013 he paid tribute to Liz, saying I’m really close to my aunt and she’s very supportive of everything I do.
The best advice she’s given me is just to enjoy myself, work hard and be nice to everybody.
Liz herself took an active role in mentoring her young nephew, with a source telling the Daily Mail in 2013 She has been incredibly involved in Miles’s modelling career.
She often sits in on his meetings and gives advice on photographs.
Liz had been in New York promoting her TV series The Royals, in which she plays the fictional Queen Mother.
She hit headlines earlier on Friday when she confirmed ex-boyfriend and good friend Hugh Grant had welcomed his fifth child with girlfriend Anna Eberstein.
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she was asked whether or not she was surprised by the amount of children he’s had.
She said He had another one last week. He has five. He was over 50 when he spawned them all.
