Engaged Elizabeth bowled over by fans' good wishes

Monday October 3, 2011

Britain's most fabulous divorcée is officially off the market.

Elizabeth Hurley's companion Shane Warne proposed to her at St Andrews in Scotland after a 10-month courtship.

The 42-year-old former Australian Test cricketer presented the glamorous brunette with an eye-popping sapphire said to be worth £50,000.

Elizabeth, 46, and her son Damian had been watching him take part in the Alfred Dunhill Links pro-am golf championship.

Organisers of the tournament said in a statement that he asked for her hand over a romantic meal before celebrating with guests and VIPs in the Old Course Hotel.

She confirmed the engagement on Saturday, tweeting: "Thanks for all your congratulations," and adding a picture of the couple about to go to dinner in St Andrews.

Her four-year marriage to businessman Arun Nayar ended in a divorce in the High Court in London in June.
