Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd has accused Britney Spears and Paris Hilton of setting a bad example to young girls - by flaunting their bodies and boasting about their sexual exploits.

The HORNBLOWER hunk has urged the hotel heiress and the pop beauty to be better role models, by wearing more dignified clothes and acting in a more responsible manner.

He says, "I look at girls like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and think, they have a responsibility to be role models to their young fans, but, instead, it's all just about sex and selling their bodies.

"I think it's tarty. Personally, I enjoy the elegance and mystery of a woman."
