Shane Warne says he’ll ‘always care’ for ex Elizabeth Hurley as he reflects on the ‘great times’

Shane Warne says he’ll ‘always care’ for ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley as he reflects on the ‘great times’ during their four-year romance

Their four year romance was barely out of the headlines before it all ended in December 2013.

But despite his split with ex Elizabeth Hurley, Shane Warne has revealed that the couple have remained close friends and that he’ll ‘always care’ for her.

Speaking during an appearance on Thursday’s This Morning, Australian cricketer Shane, 49, spoke briefly about featuring his model ex, 53, in his new biography No Spin.

When asked by presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby if he had Elizabeth’s permission to write about her in his book, he replied: ‘Look we’re still friends, we had four years of great times together.

‘It wasn’t anything that she did wrong or I did wrong, it was just one of those things which unfortunately got a little bit too hard. But we’re still great friends now.’

Host Phil then chimed in and asked: ‘You still hold a bit of a torch for her still, don’t you?’

The sportsman then hesitated slightly before continuing: ‘In an way of friendship and respect, We had a great time together and I’ll always care about her and her son Damian. She always cares about my kids and always asks about them.

‘We’re great friends, the kids get along great, so yeah, it was a great time.’

Opening up on why now was the right time to release his memoirs, Shane told the hosts: ‘I think the timing was right. My children have got older and in that time there have been 13 unofficial autobiographies about my life, stage musicals about it and so I thought you know what it’s my time to be brutally honest in my book.’

And honest he was as the book touched on the demise of his highly publicised romance, with Shane hinting that Elizabeth’s work schedule put pressure on their relationship and suggesting that he was also jealous of her friendship with her ex Hugh Grant.

‘The more you’re apart, the more you ask questions,’ he said in his autobiography.

He added: ‘I got jumpy about the time Elizabeth still spent with Hugh Grant … He is her best friend but they saw each other more when I wasn’t around so, well, you know.’

Friendship: When asked if he had Elizabeth's permission to write about her in his book, he replied: 'Look we're still friends, we had four years of great times together'

Last year Shane sparked speculation that he and Elizabeth had rekindled their romance after he shared a birthday tribute to her on Twitter.

The cricketer shared an old photo of he and Liz together, accompanied by the caption: ‘Happy birthday to my ex-fiance & yes- still a very close & dear friend @elizabethhurley1’.

The notorious ladies’ man finished off his birthday tribute with two emojis – a love heart and kissing lips.

The message caused a frenzy among fans who assumed the pair were getting back together, with one pleading: ‘You two make such a cool couple. Both family orientated and fun. Get back together.’

The pair first got together in late 2010, before Shane popped the question to the Austin Powers actress in September 2011.

However, the pair broke up a little more than two years later after struggling to manage their long-distance romance.

Shane primarily resides in Melbourne, while Elizabeth splits her time between a home in London and her estate in rural England.

Meanwhile, despite being happily single, Elizabeth recently revealed her hopes to be in a romance once more, admitting it would be ‘fantastic to fall in love with someone wonderful.’

In an interview with Red magazine, the TV personality said: ‘People say, “Are you lonely?” and actually, I’m really not. I’d rather be happy and single than miserable with someone, that’s for sure.

‘It would be fantastic to fall in love with someone wonderful, but I’ve really enjoyed the past couple of years and it’s made me realise how important it is to find someone who shares similar tastes. I think that’s because I’ve had some time to do entirely what I want to do.’

Elizabeth shared that while she has had great friendships with all her exes, including Hugh Grant, Arun Nayar and Shane, their break-ups made her realise that she needed to focus on other aspects of her life while in a relationship.

She said: ‘All of my boyfriends, husbands and fiancés have been my best friends, so it’s a terrible gap they leave.

‘I think that’s when you learn the importance of having other sources of comfort, fun and intimacy.

‘You feel cosy with people that have been your best friends for 30 years, but occasionally you’ll meet someone who you click with – it’s important to keep yourself open to that.’
