Shane Warne is dating Emily Scott.

The former cricketer - whose engagement to Elizabeth Hurley ended earlier this year - has confirmed he's in a relationship with the Australian Playboy model, 30.

Taking to his Twitter account yesterday (02.07.14), he tweeted: ''On the way to watch Aussie gun Nick Kyrgios at #Wimbledon ! Go on you good thing, take it down & keep killing it !!!

''Ps And yes I'm taking my girlfriend @EmilyLScott who's looking smoking hot too hahaha !!! (sic).''

The couple sparked rumours they were romancing after they were spotted locking lips in Sydney last month, before attending several events together in the UK.

However, the 44-year-old hunk shot down rumours they were officially dating last month by insisting they were just ''friends'' and were keen to keep it that way.

He tweeted at the time: ''Wow, 8 years of friendship, a full moon party & attending a mates 50th turns into us dating? Whats next, down on a knee

''We're good friends. Both single and intent to keep it that way, end of story

''If and when I'm ever in a relationship, I will let you know!! (sic).''

Shane was previously married to Simone Callahan and has three children Brooke, Summer and Jackson with her, while Emily married Ritchie Neville in 2008 before splitting up with him four months later.
