Elizabeth Hurley wants to have a long engagement with Shane Warne.

The 47-year-old actress-and-model got betrothed to the 43-year-old Australian cricketer in September 2011 and they still have not set a date for their big day.

However, Elizabeth isn't concerned because the couple always planned to have a lengthy engagement.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "We are loving our long engagement and had always planned it this way. We have a great deal of organising to do, mostly because Shane is now based in England while his children are based in Australia, along with much of his work. We need this time to plan out how all our lives can work. We have committed to share our lives and are trying as hard as we can to make it fabulous for everyone involved and we've had a lot of fun doing it."

Although the couple are content to wait to walk down the aisle, the 'Bedazzled' star - who was previously married to Indian textile heir Arun Nayar - says her son Damian and Shane's three kids, Brooke, Summer and Jackson, are very keen for them to marry.

She said: "I think the children are longing for us to get a move on - but it has to be the right time for all of us. We have a plan in mind, but it's still early days."
