Actor Hugh Grant has a problem with his employees - because he keeps hiring beautiful girls who are terrible at their jobs.

In new film Love Actually he plays a British Prime Minister who falls in love with his tea lady, and Notting Hill actor Hugh can understand the appeal of falling for one's staff.

He grins, "To me, the boss-employee relationship is quite an appealing, sexy set-up.

"I find myself offering girls jobs all the time. I used to find a girl in a delicatessen and offer her a job as my cleaner. These very pretty girls would turn up, hopeless at cleaning, but it was great having them around."
