Shane Warne and Bessie Bardot

Sydney radio personality Bessie Bardot has obvious talents, but picking Shane Warne's wrong'un is not among them.

Warne found himself bowling to the former model at an indoor net in Sydney today as part of a promotional event.
Bardot's legs and hands were appropriately protected with pads and gloves as she faced the world Test wickets record-holder, but her upper body was not.

Warne tossed in a friendly wrong'un which ripped back from well outside off stump, bounced awkwardly and struck Bardot quite hard on the right breast.

There were red faces all round but Bardot declared herself OK to carry on.

Warne apologised and, with cameras and reporters lurking, made sure he chose his words carefully.

Later Warne asked Bardot if the ball had, indeed, hit her where he thought it did.

"I think you might have hit them both," she said, smiling.

Bardot, from 2DAY FM, may be nursing a bruise but at least she had the guts to face him.

Former boxer Jeff Fenech and rugby league star Brad Fittler were supposed to join her in the nets but cried off late in the piece.
