Ouch Liz! Hurley takes a tumble in sky high heels as she opens a village fete

Star attraction: Liz Hurley, accompanied by boyfriend Shane Warne, was opening the Ampney Crucis Village Fete today near her home in Gloucestershire

After years on the catwalk and at glitzy red carpet events you would think Liz Hurley had got the hang of walking in heels.

But she clearly forgot today as she took a tumble at a village fete in the Cotswolds today - in front of new boyfriend Shane Warne.

Perhaps she should have opted for more sensible footwear for the Gloucestershire terrain as she opened the event in Ampney Crucis in front of hundreds of villagers.

Hit for six: Liz fell victim of her towering heels and clutched onto railings as she attempted to stay upright after cutting the ribbon to declare the fete open

Normally the epitome of elegance and poise, model and actress was walking down some steps moments after declaring the fete open when her nude wedges got the better of her.

She lost her balance making a dive for the railings in a bid to stay upright and seemed to topple over on her left foot.

She did not appear to have hurt herself though as she was seen back on two feet within no time leafing through second hand books.

However, she did clutch Warne's hand for the rest of the afternoon just in case she took another tumble.

Her shoes were not the only part of her outfit Ms Hurley seemed to get wrong today.

Whilst almost all the villagers were prepared for the unsettled weather in flat shoes, jumpers and coats, Ms Hurley shivered in a bright yellow sleeveless sun dress for the event.

Fete organisers were delighted Ms Hurley decided to open the fete. Both previous times organisers have taken more than £3,000.

The Austin Powers actress has been dating Warne since last December.

In the last few weeks there has been a notable change in his appearance, with significant weight loss and a dramatically preened new look.

A top plastic surgeon believes he has opted for surgery but he insists it is down to his girlfriend's beauty creams.

Ms Hurley has become a regular at the Ampney Crucis summer fete since moving from London to the 400-acre Ampney Knowle organic farm in Gloucestershire in 2008.

While she may be more used to A-list parties, the activities at the fete included Women’s Institute teas, a Pimm’s tent, bottle tombola and a dog agility show.

The couple have barely been out of the news lately. On Thursday, they stole the show at Sir Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball and on Friday were seen kissing in a London cafe.

They are said to have started dating in December. Ms Hurley’s four-year marriage to Arun Nayar ended when a divorce was granted earlier this month.
