Shane Warne labels Waleed Aly 'a dick'

A SERIOUSLY cranky Shane Warne has apparently labeled Waleed Aly "arrogant", "smug" and "a dick" after the journalist had the temerity to question the former international cricketer about his charity foundation.

Warne was appearing on The Project from South Africa where he had just been ejected from jungle reality show I'm a Celebrity ...

 

 

After clipping to the boundary a few easy questions about his supposed burgeoning romance with US model Carmen Electra (they'll be taking things slow) and his famous arachnophobia (still not keen), Warne was wrong-footed by a seemingly innocuous Aly delivery asking what his next move was on the troubled Shane Warne Foundation.

"I have been in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in isolation for six weeks so I have no idea what's going on there at the moment. I have done 13 hours of PR straight," bristled Warne, before launching into what sounded like a well-rehearsed defence of the charity, which pulled up stumps at the end of January.

"We have nothing to hide. We welcome any audit," he continued. "It is really disappointing that people want to come after some good people that have raised a lot of money and made a serious difference to seriously underprivileged children.
