Shane Warne met Liz Hurley for lunch yesterday (23.09.13).

The former cricket star was spotted with the 48-year-old beauty at Italian restaurant Santa Lucia in Fulham, west London, after he flew out to England last week to reportedly clear the air with his fiancée of two years amid rumours their romance is on the rocks.

The pair were not alone, the 44-year-old sportsman's kids Brooke, Summer and Jackson - his children with ex-wife Simone Callahan - joined them, in addition to one of their friends.

Liz was dressed in a purple v-neck top which she paired with leather trousers and was once again seen without her large sapphire engagement ring.

This comes shortly after she confirmed she was having a difficult time coming to terms with her personal life, telling her 400,000 Twitter followers the matter was ''too raw and personal'' to discuss.

She tweeted: ''Apologies to loyal followers for Twitter silence on recent events. Too raw & personal to share right now. (sic)''

However, Shane was quick to deny speculation they have called time on their three-year relationship.

He wrote on Twitter: ''Some of the reports re EH & me r absolute rubbish. Yes we're sorting through some (private) issues. But we're not throwing the towel in yet (sic)''
