A Liz lookalike (but 20 years younger) for the jilted Mr Hurley
10th January 2011
They are both beautiful models with glossy chestnut hair and sparkling green-eyes.
But Kim Johnson, who has started romancing Indian textile tycoon Arun Nayar, has one striking difference from his estranged wife Elizabeth Hurley.
Having just turned 25, Miss Johnson is two decades younger than the woman she has replaced.
She is reported to have spent three nights with Nayar at his £650,000 flat in Kensington, west London last week and has been spotted sharing kisses with him.
The couple also enjoyed a meal with friends at the Michelin-starred Amaya Indian restaurant in Knightsbridge and shared takeaways alone together at his home.
Hurley, 45, announced the end of her three-year marriage to 46-year-old Nayar last month after she was pictured embracing former Australian cricketer Shane Warne.
The pair had exchanged a string of flirtatious messages on Twitter for months before the photographs appeared.
But just a week later, 41-year-old Warne was accused of two-timing Hurley by sending another woman, Australian mother-of-two Adele Angeleri, 100 saucy texts.
On December 31 she asked him ‘any good new year resolutions ???’. He vowed ‘stop eating sweeties & do sit ups’. He adds: ‘I know you’re a salad eating gym bunny by nature xx’.
Yesterday Hurley remained silent about Nayar’s new lover as she spent the day in Gloucestershire.
A friend of Mr Nayar told the Sunday Mirror: ‘It has been a painful time for them both, but it’s wonderful he has found in Kim a very sweet, down to earth girl.’
Miss Johnson grew up in Buckinghamshire and was spotted by a modelling agency aged 16.
