Cricket legend Shane Warne and actress Elizabeth Hurley have reportedly split, again.

The rumour mill is abuzz that the celebrity couple is no more following a report in UK magazine Hello! that the pair had quietly decided to go their separate ways.

According to the report, a close source to the couple said "there were just too many issues in the way" of the romance.

"Elizabeth is taking it one day at a time. She will always be extremely fond of Shane," the source is quoted as saying.

A somewhat mysterious and philosophical tweet by Warne on Monday night is now being scrutinised for confirmation of the break-up.

Meanwhile, Hurley, also an avid Twitter user, has made no mention of a split, most recently tweeting about her Christmas tree. Hurley is in England with her 11-year-old son Damian for the Christmas holidays while Warne is in Australia, with commitments to Channel Nine's cricket coverage.

The couple, nicknamed Shurley, were forced to deny that their relationship was over in September when both tweeted hints that their engagement was on the rocks.

Hurley had tweeted that "recent events" were "too raw and personal to share right now".

Meanwhile, Warne had tweeted: "Yes, we're sorting through some [private] issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet".

The couple, who became engaged in September 2011, were pictured together in November at the launch of the Shane Warne Foundation's Ambassador Program, but Hurley had reportedly stopped wearing her sapphire engagement ring.
