I'm A Celeb...Shane Warne Believes Aliens Created Human Race

Australian cricket legend Shane Warne insists aliens created the human race.

In a conversation with fellow contestant Bonnie Lythgoe on Australian TV show I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! on Monday, the sporting legend challenged the theory of evolution and put forward his own idea on the origins of intelligent life.

"If we've evolved from monkeys, then why haven't those ones (monkeys around today) evolved?" Shane asked Bonnie.

"Because, I'm saying, aliens... We started from aliens. Look at those pyramids, Bonnie, you couldn't do them. You couldn't pull those ropes, huge bits of brick and make it perfectly symmetrical. Couldn't do it. So who did it?"

After the dancer tentatively agreed with his evidence for extra-terrestrial intervention on Earth, the former beau of British actress Elizabeth Hurley elaborated upon his theory.

"Whatever planet they're on out there, they decided that they were gonna start some more life here on Earth and study us," he said. "Maybe they turned a few monkeys into humans and said, 'Yeah, it works'."

The cricketer quickly became a hot topic of conversation among users of Twitter.com, as within hours of his chat 'Shane Warne' became one of the top trending topics on the social media site as members of the public poured scorn on his remarks
