Elizabeth Hurley‘s mystery ‘Superman’ has insisted the pair are ‘just friends’ after being pictured wrestling with the fishnet-clad star while dressed as the iconic superhero on New Year’s Eve. 

Henry Birtles, 55, a poet and horse lover who has met the Queen, claims to be a friend of Liz’s former fiancé Shane Warne, from whom she separated in 2013

He told The Sun: ‘It was a laugh, OK, it was past midnight. Everyone had had a bit too much to drink and we had a Superman versus Supergirl wrestle and someone took a picture. It was pretty lighthearted.

‘I was the best man at his wedding and we are just great, great old friends. And it is nothing more than that. Elizabeth has come horse-racing with me, several times. I am a friend of Shane Warne.

Claiming to be the Austin Powers star’s friend of thirty years, he concluded: ‘This is nothing. It has all just gone a bit pear-shaped.’

Nicknamed The Racing Poet, Henry’s website reads: ‘His poems are a regular feature on Cheltenham Gold Cup Day where he recites to the crowd.’

He queued alongside Joanna Lumley to meet The Queen at Buckingham Palace in 2013 and featured Liz in his video the following year for his England 2014 football World Cup poem That Time Again.

Only days earlier, Elizabeth put on an animated display as she dressed up as a sexy Supergirl for fun-filled New Year’s Eve celebrations.

The model looked like she was having a great end to 2021 in the raucous snaps uploaded to her Instagram where she was joined by a male companion. 

Blast from the past: 'I was the best man at his wedding and we are just great, great old friends. And it is nothing more than that. Elizabeth has come horse-racing with me, several times. I am a friend of Shane Warne'

She looked sensational in the curve-hugging outfit that featured the classic blue corset top with the logo on, gold belt and red skirt.

She posed up a storm with the man before they fell to the floor together and she put her leg over him. 

The final photo showed off more of her daring outfit, which included a cape, fishnet tights and some knee-high boots.

In her caption, she teased: ‘Supergirl vs Superman. Happy New Year everyone.’

Last month, Elizabeth revealed that she sprained her ankle as she enjoyed her last day in the Caribbean, where she had been filming her latest movie Christmas in the Caribbean.

Alongside a stunning snap of her posing in a green kaftan, she wrote: ‘Bye bye glorious Caribbean- it’s been a blast- in spite of the sprained ankle.’ 

The star was inundated with plenty of supportive messages wishing her a speedy recovery.
