Red carpet debut: Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne leave the model's London home to head to Sir Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball

Elizabeth Hurley and Shane Warne tonight made their red carpet at Sir Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball.

The pair, who have been dating since last December, looked smart as they headed to the annual fundraising event held at Sir Elton and partner David Furnish's Windsor Home.

While Elizabeth stuck to her usual formula in a floor-sweeping animal-print gown, she admitted to her Twitter followers earlier in the day that she had been struggling to decide what to wear.

She wrote: 'Off to Elton & David's White Tie & Tiara Aids fundraiser. Can't decide which dress......'

Meanwhile, cricket legend Shane looked sharp in a black tuxedo which highlighted his recent weight loss.

The sportsman is believed to have lost around 22lbs over the last few months, largely due to his girlfriend's influence.

In fact, Shane has now completely changed the way he thinks about food, as he showed on his Twitter page when he asked his followers for advice on what to eat.

He tweeted: 'Feel like a hot pie with copious amounts of sauce with crinkle cut chips!! What the best pie?'

But Shane then added just minutes later: 'NO Shane!! 78kg is target currently 82.5. Settle on a protein shake with an apple and banana - sob.'

Elizabeth and Shane looked happier than ever as they attended the ball, keeping their arms around each other and smiling for photographers.

And, in a recent interview, Shane said he was looking forward to spending more time with his gorgeous girlfriend.

He said: 'She's a lovely lady. We get on really well and I'm spending a lot of time in England this summer, working for Sky.

'We'll wait and see what happens between Liz and I - but at the moment things are great.'

Earlier in the day, Shane was photographed arriving at Elizabeth's London home with a huge grin on his face and carrying a bag of golf clubs.

Elizabeth, 46, announced in December that she had split from husband Arun Nayar, after pictures emerged of her kissing cricketer Shane Warne in a hotel in London.

Following the pictures' publication, both Hurley and Warne hastily issued statements revealing that their respective marriages had been over for some time.

Since then, the new couple have been making headlines for their on/off romance, rendezvous in Australia and India and tabloid rumours of his alleged infidelity.

Elizabeth married Indian textile heir Nayar at Sudely Castle, near Winchcombe, Gloucestershire, in March 2007 - and had a traditional Hindu wedding at Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, India.

The ceremonies were attended by numerous celebrities, including Sir Elton John, who gave the bride away.

Announcing her separation from Arun, Liz tweeted: 'Not a great day. For the record, my husband Arun & I separated a few months ago. Our close family & friends were aware of this.'

She added: 'Painful, sad days. Arun & I separated for private reasons but FTR he has been a great father to our son Damian & will always be in his life.'

Hours later, Shane, 41, took to his own blog to confirm that his tumultuous marriage to wife Simone was also over.

In a statement he said: 'Sadly and unfortunately, Simone and I split up a while ago, our close friends and family were informed at that time.

'It is a private matter so we did not make it public. We remain friends and will continue to be good parents.'

A notorious philanderer, Shane split from Simone, the mother of his children Brooke, 13, Jackson, 11 and Summer, 8, after a string of affairs, including a notorious sex text scandal in 2000 which saw him stripped of his Australian vice-captaincy.
