Actor Hugh Grant was delighted when he was sent a love song by one of his adoring fans.

Actor Hugh Grant was delighted when he was sent a love song by one of his adoring fans.

But then he found out it was from a male prison inmate.

The UK actor plays a washed- up pop star trying to return to the big time by writing a love song in his new film Music and Lyrics, in which he stars alongside Drew Barrymore.

And while Grant has never tried to woo a loved one with a musical ode, he will never forget the time he received one.

"I've never written one, but I did once receive a love song," he recalled.

And assuring his girlfriend, Jemima Khan, she has nothing to worry about, he explains: "It was from a man in a high security prison in East Anglia [in eastern England]." -Wenn
