Warne was first linked to Hurley, 56, back in 2010, shortly after her separation from businessman Arun Nayar. In October 2011, four months after her divorce from Nayar was finalised, Warne and Hurley announced their engagement.
Unfortunately, they never made it down the aisle as they split in 2013, but Warne says they are still good friends.
As for 48-year-old Beckinsale, in the last few years, she has been linked to comedians Pete Davidson and Matt Rife, British actor Jack Whitehall and singer-songwriter Goody Grace.
