Shane Warne is "still friends" with his ex-fiancée Elizabeth Hurley.
The retired cricketer called off his engagement to the British actress last winter, two years after he popped the question, with the couple reportedly blaming their busy schedules for growing apart.
He confirmed their split had been amicable on Australian breakfast show 'Sunrise' yesterday, saying: "Elizabeth and I are still friends and we catch up when we can. It's a shame it's all over and done, but that's the way it goes unfortunately."
The sportsman was quick to dismiss rumours he had been romancing lingerie entrepreneur Michelle Mone when reporters quizzed him whether the claims he spent four hours in the millionaire's Dorchester Hotel room in London earlier this month were true.

Shane scoffed on another breakfast show, 'Today': "It's nobody's business but that's all absolute rubbish, just for the record."
He jetted back to the UK two weeks ago to visit Liz at the Herefordshire mansion they bought in 2012 for a catch-up, before travelling to London together and staying at her townhouse.
Shane is then alleged to have visited Michelle the next day, taking roses and champagne up to her hotel suite.
He insisted in a third interview with Triple M's 'Hot Breakfast': "I'm single, I'm not seeing anyone, I'm not dating anyone, I haven't got the hots for anyone."
Michelle also denied the rumours on Twitter last week, posting: "FTR [for the record] I'd never ever meet a guy if he was taken. It was done to me and I remember that pain. / I've been single for 18 months, very independent, successful and don't need anyone for anything other than my family."
