Emma Watson's Housekeeper Worked in the UK Illegally?

Immigration officials in the UK are investigating claims that Emma Watson's American housekeeper could have worked for her illegally. Reports suggest the maid may have worked at Watson's London home while she held a tourist visa. Tourist visas bar foreign citizens from working in the UK.

The housekeeper, who is thought to have first started working for the Harry Potter actress at her New York apartment, was reportedly stopped by UK immigration staff who questioned how she intended to fund her stay in Britain. 

Border Agency officials started the probe after receiving a complaint that she was paid to aid the actress at her home in Islington.

A source at the Home Office told The Independent that they "wouldn't routinely comment on individual cases."

According to the newspaper, it is alleged that the maid spent three months in Britain between September 2013 and February 2014. 

Watson had been living in the United States as she studied for her degree in English Literature at Brown University in Rhode Island.

Since graduating, she is thought to have been living in London and will attend the Prime Minister David Cameron's 'Cool Britannia' party at Downing Street this evening.

A spokesperson for the actress is yet to comment on the reports.

Watson recently completed shooting Alejandro Amenabar's forthcoming thriller 'Regression', about a father accused of a crime he has no memory of committing. It co-stars Ethan Hawke.
