Liz Hurley is "blooming" since her split from Shane Warne, she has revealed.

The 48-year-old star opened up about the end of their relationship for the first time to Hello! Magazine, saying that she still has feelings for her ex-fiancé.

She explained: "We finally parted ways in Nov­ember. It was a very sad time for both of us. Love isn't a switch that you can turn on or off at will. I still love him – we are part of each other's history.

"I struggled for a while but feel in a very good place. In fact, both professionally and personally everything is blooming."

Hurley is currently dating David Yarrow, a hedge fund tycoon who is now a wildlife photographer, who she describes as "a man of integrity and charm and who, incidentally, cooks roast potatoes to rival those of my father".
