Liz Hurley left heartbroken as she's forced to miss ex Shane Warne's funeral

LIZ Hurley has been left heartbroken as she is unable to attend the private funeral of her ex-fiancé Shane Warne.

The actress, 56, cannot make the Australian service that is being held for the cricket legend as she has been stuck working in the UK.


Liz, who was engaged to Shane for three years, is devastated that she cannot get there in time to say goodbye in person.

She has also admitted it still hasn't even "sunk in" that Shane has died.

Taking to Instagram, grieving Liz wrote: "My heart aches that I can’t be in Australia tomorrow for Shane’s funeral. I was filming last night and, with the time jump, physically can’t get there.

"These pictures were taken in Sri Lanka to celebrate our engagement – we had all our children with us and it was the happiest time."

Liz added: "It still hasn’t really sunk in that he’s gone.

"It seems too cruel that all the people who loved him will never have another Lion hug, but our memories will live forever."

The star signed off her emotional tribute: "RIP Lionheart, with love your Luna."

CLOSE BOND

Shane died of a suspected heart attack at a Thai resort earlier this month aged 52.

There has been an outpour of tributes to the cricket ace since his passing and his family have welcomed some of his former team-mates and media colleagues to Sunday's private funeral.

Initially, it was expected that Elizabeth – who had a close bond with Shane despite their break-up in 2013 – would attend.

Following his death, she even reached out to his two daughters with an emotional message.

Liz reassured Brooke, 24, and Summer, 20, that 'daddy loved them'.
