Hugh Grant has made his love affair with British socialite Jemima Khan public - by enjoying a series of passionate clinches on a French beach during a romantic break.

The LOVE ACTUALLY star, 43, and 30-year-old Khan were openly frolicking by the sea over the weekend (21AUG04) as they holidayed in the south of France.

A source says, "They looked so happy they couldn't keep their hands off each other. Some people recognised Hugh but he didn't seem to care who saw him.

"They looked so relaxed in each other's company as if nothing else in the world mattered."

Khan is divorced from former cricket legend IMRAN KHAN, while Grant enjoyed a long-term relationship with actress Elizabeth Hurley before they split four years ago.
