The 52-year-old actress - who previously dated Hugh Grant, Shane Warne and was married to Arun Nayar - insists she is friendly with all of her former flames and revealed Hugh and Arun are still "very important" people in her life.

She said: "The thing is if someone's lovely how could you not be on good terms with them? None of us has ever done anything bad to one another.

"Hugh and Arun are very important in our lives. Shane is still a good friend; we were texting each other last night. Damian loves Shane's three kids, so we'll always be connected to each other in one way or another."

Meanwhile, Elizabeth also revealed she decided it was best to send her 15-year-old son Damian - who she has with ex Steve Bing - off to boarding school so he could have a sense of normality.

She told You magazine: "My mother helps where she can but she is a generation older and if Damian were at day school in London, aged 15, and I had to go away for work, I don't think she would have been able to cope with the challenges. He went to a day school in the country for a while, but it was hard to know who could hold the fort there, and because he is an only child and was never going to have siblings, I wanted him to have kids around him.

"We're quite isolated. There aren't neighbours like there were where I grew up, when you could just get on your bike and say, 'Do you want to come out and play?' He doesn't have that. It was the right decision and he's very happy where he is. And now we have these great holidays every summer, on set. He likes that; he'd rather be on set than on holiday. There's part of me, though, that would rather be on holiday."
