Exclusive: Shane Warne and Liz Hurley Call it Quits!

September 19, 2013



The whirlwind romance between Australia’s favourite reformed bad boy, Shane Warne, and Britain’s dishiest model, actor and swimwear designer, Liz Hurley, has come to an end.

Hurley has ditched the engagement ring she’s proudly worn for almost two years and Warne has ceased posting prolific declarations of love and gratitude on social media.

We all suspected it would end sooner rather than later but good lord it was a fun ride while it lasted.


It was in late 2010 when the public first became aware of the Shurley dalliance after the couple were caught snogging outside a London hotel. Since then the courtship has been very much a public affair with the lovey dovey duo preferring to exchange messages publicly via Twitter instead of privately by text message.

Even when they were sharing the same bed, they’d post gushing tweets about their mutual love and adoration for each other.

So when the tweets stopped, folks naturally started wondering if there was trouble in paradise. When the tweets took a cryptic tone hinting at deep contemplation we knew something was not right.

Late on a Sunday night Warne tweeted: “Something to think about, it’s not what happens in your life, it’s how you react to what life throws at u, in both the good & bad times!” It was a different Warnie to the one his more than 1.3 million followers are used to seeing on social media.


Warnie often posts dishy pics of Liz on facebook and twitter, however in the past two weeks there have been no Liz pictures or references, and instead we’ve had pictures of the kids and a selfie with Karl Stefanovic. If that doesn’t spell the end of a romance, then we don’t know what will..!

For her part, Liz has been less subtle, posting pictures of herself in bed with her dogs with the telling words;

“The more I know of man, the more I love my dog.”

She also failed to wish Warne a happy 44th birthday last week.


It says something about the modern age that the first sign of a relationship breakdown is when a couple unfollow each other on Twitter or change their relationship status on Facebook.

We knew the Katy Perry-Russell Brand marriage was irretrievably broken down when Perry unfollowed Brand on Twitter. And earlier this week the end of another celebrity engagement was heralded when twerking songstress, Miley Cyrus, and Australian actor, Liam Hemsworth, unfollowed each other on social media.

Perhaps there is still hope for Warne and Hurley with the couple continuing to follow each other on Twitter.

    That is terribly distressing news.

    All Aussie men (oi!) were proud when Shane was shagging Liz (cop that Poms). It was better than winning the Ashes.

    It’s been a very tragic year for romantics, first it was Clive James and Leanne Edelstein breaking up, now Shane and Liz.

    What’s next?

    And to think I thought this relationship was going to last for ever.

    If superior beings like Warnie(Oi!) and Our Liz can’t make it work, what hope for the rest of us mere mortals?

    Oh, the humanity!

    It did seem to be a match made in heaven. What’s next for Shane? Danni Minogue seems personable.

    What of Liz? Unfortunately I’m not planning a trip to the UK.

    …but I was reflecting to a UK friend recently that I think David Cameron’s wife could have done much better for herself.

    “it sounds like warnie fcuked it up”

    I think that’s a bit unfair…

    Liz tried to turn him into metrosexual manikin…

    And as we all know, that’s just not Warnie…..

    Liz shouldn`t have forced Warnie to get involved with Advanced-Hair (rugs-are-us) for the benefit of a few stalking-paps getting photos for the womans-day glossy`s

    Warnie is a master of spin, Liz is unfamiliar with the genre and that’s how it became unstuck.

    Didn’t Warnie give up smoking for Australia too…?

    Personally I don’t feel betrayed that he’s taken it up again (presuming he really gave it up in the first place). Some people just look unnatural without a ciggie dangling from their lips and I’d suggest that our Warnie is one of them…

    Warne is a dipshit. Always has been. Always will be.

    ‘Liz Hurley and fiance Shane Warne ‘are coming to the end of their rocky patch’ – and are now talking about having children.

    ‘We can reveal that former cricket star Shane, who flew back to Australia last month in a huff, is planning to return to London make things up with the model and actress.’
