Change of venue for the Shane and Liz show?

Two years after their long-distance relationship was met with national disbelief and played out via gushy tweets, it appears Shane Warne is preparing to relocate to Britain and set up home with his soon to be new wife, the British sexpot Elizabeth Hurley.

At the very least he'll be moving out of his five-bedroom Melbourne mansion after recently putting it on the market with a reported asking price of $20 million. Where he'll make his new home is not yet known but overnight media reports emerged that he and Hurley had offered more than $9 million for Donnington Hall, a huge English estate near the Welsh border.

Yet this morning, local observers were unconvinced, given the initial report surfaced in New Idea magazine, which is engaged in a high-stakes battle with Woman's Day for any morsels of information relating to Warne, Hurley and his ex-wife Simone Callahan. It is a battle that often has little regard for veracity, such as when Warne had to deny he had had a facelift, blaming his physical "transformation" on liberal applications of Liz's night cream.

Interestingly the latest story also comes just days after Hurley was reportedly looking for a Melbourne school to send her son Damian, leading to yet more media speculation she was the one about to relocate to Australia, which she later denied ... on Twitter.

But according to London's Daily Mail, the pair have bought a huge Georgian mansion on the Gloucestershire-Herefordshire border on the edge of the Forest of Dean and featuring 77 hectares worth of private grounds with the main residence comprising of 13 bedrooms and five bathrooms.

That should be plenty of room for the blended family, with four children between them comprising Hurley's son Damian and Warne's three children to Callahan, Brooke, 14, Jackson, 12, and Summer, 10.

Presumably it will only be a matter of time before Callahan, who previously spoke of her disapproval at Hurley being referred to as "stepmum", "breaks her silence" and tells one of the magazines, for a fee, that she is not happy about the new living arrangements, real or not.

Stay tuned.

  • If you want to go inside the brain of the "whipped Warne" read his latest twitter line about his over the top life. He will move to the UK as I feel the GF prefers her hometown to Melbourne.He is almost the same age as me and acts like a teenager for goodness sake.I feel for his kids,they will cop the short end of the stick out of all of this silly stuff and Simone will pick up the pieces until they are grown and voice their own thoughts.After what he wrote about today re:Hinch sacking, Shane we agree with any statement that has been made about yr carry on that you constantly have to keep telling yr insecure self, just move already we are so sick of the circus that you and Hurley has created.

    • One bad ex hubby does not mean we are all of the same calibre. Some of us actually sacrifice our own lives, so the impact on our kids is minimal.

    • I hope everything works out for these 2 lovebirds. Warnie deserves a bit of TLC after what his ex-wife put him through. They seem like the most down to earth couple considering the amount of scrutiny they are under. Don't worry about all the haters Shane, they're just jealous of your youthful looks and mature outlook on life.
