LARA AND MICHAEL END THERE ENGAGEMENT

Lara Bingle and Michael Clarke officially ended their engagement on Friday night, ending days of speculation of a split.

The pair released joint statements that announced the relationship was over "Michael Clarke and Lara Bingle have decided to end their engagement," it said. "They ask the media to respect their privacy during this difficult time. No further comment will be made."

Earlier yesterday, Bingle laughed and joked as she enjoyed a manicure between a bit of retail therapy at Erina Fair on the Central Coast with girlfriend Hermione Underwood.

Dressed in designer ripped jeans, a black singlet and carrying a flannelette shirt, the swimsuit model appeared to shrug off her romance troubles as she and Underwood hit Erina Fair.
