Elizabeth Hurley is suffering from flu.

The British model is currently enjoying a visit to Australia with fiance Shane Warne, 43, to watch him play cricket as part of the T20 Big Bash League matches but has been unable to enjoy the hot weather after being struck with the virus shortly after arriving Down Under last week and is dosing herself up with medicine to fight it off.

Liz wrote on Twitter: ''Fighting flu....dosing up on Sudafed and zinc.

''Yes, it's 30' outside and yes, I'm lying on the sofa shivering under a blanket.... (sic) ''

However, the 47-year-old brunette has had Shane taking care of her and nursing her back to full health while she relaxes.

She tweeted: ''Thanku @warne888 for looking after me all day and feeding me Codral and herbal teas.....

''In bed, nursing my cold, & reading Aus Vogue and Aus Bazaar...both v good with v nice fashion. (sic)''

The couple are currently in Perth, where Shane is training for his match tomorrow evening (12.12.12) at the famous WACA Ground.

The cricketer wrote on his Twitter page: ''Looking forward to taking @ElizabethHurley to Perth, her 1st trip to the west.

''Hope the sun is shining there too. (sic)''
