Liz to spend Christmas in Australia

ELIZABETH Hurley is spending Christmas in Australia.

The actress-and-model - who is engaged to Australian cricket legend Shane Warne - will celebrate the festive season in her fiance's native Melbourne but admits it will be strange to have Christmas in a hot climate.

Writing on her twitter page, Elizabeth said: "Spending my first Xmas in Australia this year. Very excited. (sic)

"Do Australians do the whole turkey/crackers/ Bing Crosby thing?!"

Despite the weather being hot, Elizabeth - who has a nine-year-old son Damian from a previous relationship - and the Warne family have decided to go with a traditional English meal and have a roast turkey with all the trimmings.

The mother-of-one said: "Thanks for all the Aussie Xmas food advice: we're going to attempt a trad English one. Future mother in law searching for an organic turkey. (sic)"

However, the 'Austin Powers' star is worried she won't be able to enjoy Christmas in a house decorated in the way she is used to.

She asked her twitter followers: "Can u get real Christmas trees in Melbourne?! (sic)"
