Liz Hurley says she 'still loves' Shane Warne but has moved on

The actress and businesswoman talks of her struggles in splitting from the Aussie cricket legend.

Liz Hurley has confessed to struggling to get over her split with Shane Warne.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, Hurley poses in a swimsuit from her latest collection and opens up about her relationship with the Aussie cricketer.

"Love isn't a switch that you can turn on or off at will and of course I still love him – we are part of each other's history,” the actress and businesswoman says.

Hurley and the 44-year-old cricketer turned poker player were together for three years before separating in November 2013.

"We finally parted ways in November and it was a very sad time for both of us," Hurley says.

"I struggled for a while but feel in a very good place today. In fact both professionally and personally everything is blooming."


Hurley, 48, certainly seems to be doing well since the split, with a new main man and plenty of work keeping her busy.

The designer is dating hedge fund tycoon turned wildlife photographer David Yarrow, 48, who she says is a lovely person and a mean cook.

“[He's] a man of integrity and charm who, incidentally, cooks roast potatoes to rival those of my father,” she says.

As well as launching her latest range of swimwear – and courting controversy in the process – Hurley is set to appear in US television series The Royals and the movie Viktor with Gerard Depardieu.

Warne, however, is taking a longer time to get back onto the dating scene.

In an interview with Kyle and Jackie O on Kiis FM last week the former Test cricketer said he was still single.

“I haven't been on one date yet,” he told Kyle. “I just haven't moved on like some.”

That may have been a thinly veiled dig at his ex, but Warne confessed he had also struggled with the break-up.

“It's always sad when you break up in a relationship you're happy in, but unfortunately that's just the way things work out," he said.

He joked that he would date Miranda Kerr if that were an option, but for the moment there didn't appear to be any other lady on his horizon.

Despite the "sad" break-up and their busy lives, Hurley says she still stays in touch with Warne and his family.

“We've been putting together Mac photobooks of some of the great holidays we all spent together and have very happy memories."

However, the former couple can't seem to decide what to do with a house they had been renovating in Herefordshire.

Hurley says the future of the 13-bedroom property near Ledbury is still “up in the air”.
