Liz and Hugh knock villagers for six
Liz Hurley and Hugh Grant left villagers speechless when they turned up to join in a local cricket match.

Former partners Hurley and Grant arrived at the Winchcombe Cricket Club in Gloucestershire on Sunday. They were invited by aristocrat Henry Dent-Brocklehurst.

Members of the club had asked Dent-Brocklehurst to field a team from his Sudeley Castle home nearby, expecting a troupe of castle staff.

They were knocked for six, however, when Dent-Brocklehurst invited his showbiz pals. Other celebrity players included former Pakistan cricket captain Imran Khan, his wife Jemima and Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.
