Elizabeth HurleyElizabeth Hurley’s ex Shane Warne has spoken about her relationship with Hugh Grant.

"It's hard on your new relationship when you're really good friends with the exes," Warne said. "Elizabeth was really good friends with Hugh, who is like her best friend. When I used to go back to Australia, if she wasn't leaving London, he'd come and spend the weekend at the house.”

"I went, 'I tell you what. Tell him to come when I'm there,'" Warne added, before revealing that he also told Hurley, "Well, I knew Hugh before I knew you, so just tell him to come over. But she said, 'Oh no, he feels uncomfortable.'“

Speaking about their break-up Warne also said, "Contrary to what anyone writes, I didn't do anything wrong, she didn't do anything wrong, it all just got too hard.” Warne also insisted that Hurley and Grant are not currently romantically involved, despite recent rumours.
