Liz Hurley was filmed having an altercation with a reporter at Perth airport yesterday

Elizabeth Hurley landed herself in hot water at Perth airport yesterday, after loosing her cool with a reporter who tried to question her fiance Shane Warne.


The incident, caught on camera, showed sports journalist Caty Price approaching he pair with a microphone as they made their way through the airport.

After receiving a stern stare from Shane Warne in answer to a question about his recent cricket match, the reporter turned to Liz Hurley, who walked a few steps behind, pulling a small suitcase.

But Prince didn't get quite the reaction she was after, after Hurley turned aggressively saying it was 'rude' to stand in front of people, and muttered something out of earshot of the camera, which the reporter later revealed as 'f*kc of.

Taking to Twitter to vent, actress-turned-Channel 10-reporter Price wrote: ‘Being pushed by Liz Hurley and then told to f#*k off by her too .. Fair to say the Stars aren't happy this morning #bbl’

Later in the day, Price spoke to Tom Elliot on Drive about the incident, revealing: ‘We went to the airport chasing Shane Warne about his performance in the cricket last night, and we got a lot more than we expected.

‘I asked Liz what she thought of last night's game, all the sudden she responded by turning on her heels and coming back at me fairly close to my face, saying 'I think you should F**k off.’

While reps for the pair are yet to make a comment, Liz Hurley seemed Oblivious to the storm that raged around her.

'Goodbye to Perth!,' she wrote on Twitter. 'Thanku for amazing hospitality... v disappointing result for the Stars but great to spend time in another Aus city… Lots of thanks to the WACA for being so nice. We were looked after beautifully’
