He was married to his former wife Simone Callahan for ten years between 1995 and 2005.
And during Monday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Shane Warne appeared to accidentally imply he picked-up females while still married to his ex.
The 46-year-old was detailing how he met Coldplay’s Chris Martin in a hotel lift 16 years ago while he was trying to ‘sneak’ someone back to his room.
But the former cricketer seemed oblivious to the fact he was still married to Simone in 2000 as he described the encounter to his fellow campmates.

In hot water: The former cricketer revealed he was was trying ‘to sneak’ someone up to his room on the night he met Chris in 2000 – while he was still married to Simone
‘I’m in the lift. I’ve got someone with me,’ he explained, adding: ‘I’m trying to sneak up to my room and I notice a guy in a corner. He also had someone.’
The former Australian cricket player went into detail about how the pair recognised each other due to their careers before asking about their plans for the rest of the night.
‘He [Chris] said “what are you doing?” I said “I think I’m doing the same as you”,’ Shane continued.
‘I then went up to his room, we had a bit of a giggle…we sat there and talked all night until the sun came up.

‘You know when you just click? Ever since then we’ve been good buddies.’
The former cricket legend went on to add that the musician has been monitoring his social media accounts while he was in South Africa.
‘He’s one of my best friends. He is doing guest tweeting and stuff for me while I am in here,’ he said while going red faced.
Shane’s apparent admission about his companion on the night he met Chris comes 11 years after he split from Simone due to years of his alleged infidelity.

In 2006, the mother of his three children told New Idea magazine their 10 year marriage was ‘over and there’s no going back’.
‘I’ve worked out what I’m going to do and how I’ll cope.
‘I don’t think Shane had really thought about it. I don’t think he believed it was really over. I am sure he thought we’d try again when he got back from the UK.’
The divorce came a year after a British newspaper reported Shane’s alleged involvement in a series of sex scandals.
