She previously broke her silence on the death of her ex-fiancé, writing: ‘I feel like the sun has gone behind a cloud forever. RIP my beloved Lionheart @shanewarne23.’

Warne, who died suddenly from a heart attack while on a ‘lads’ holiday’, had told ABC host Leigh Sales in 2018 he wanted ‘to become a better person’ when dating Elizabeth. 

Shane and Elizabeth first got together in late 2010, before he popped the question to the Austin Powers actress in September 2011, but they sadly split in 2013.

He said of the romance in 2018: ‘Who knows what the future holds. There’s a difference between in love with someone and loving someone. I’ll always love Elizabeth but I don’t think we’ll ever get back together.’

 Warne tragically died on March 4 at the age of 52 while on holiday with his friends in Koh Samui, Thailand. He died from ‘natural causes’, an autopsy concluded.
