Elizabeth Hurley is ''blooming'' following her split from Shane Warne.

The 48-year-old star ended her three-year relationship with the retired cricketer last year and although she admits it was difficult initially she's now in a great place in her life.

Elizabeth told Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''We finally parted ways in November (2013) and it was a very sad time for both of us.

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

Although Elizabeth has moved on from her relationship she insists there will always be a part of her that loves him especially because they were together for a long time.

She explained: ''Love isn't a switch that you can turn on or off at will and of course I still love him -- we are part of each other's history.''

The brunette beauty has since been linked to wildlife-photographer David Yarrow, who she described as ''a man of integrity and charm and who, incidentally, cooks roast potatoes to rival those of my father''.
