Hugh Grant has had a busy week - fielding interest about his new state of fatherhood, after a "fleeting affair", and now seen squiring a talented young lady around Berlin.

The woman enjoying the ex-actor's attentions is 21-year-old Elisa Schmidt, described variously as a burlesque dancer, entertainer... but actually a jazz singer, who goes by the stage name Schmidt.

The pair have been spotted in glamorous haunts in the German city, including Borchardt, according to Mail Online, a restaurant popular with visiting celebrities, after reportedly meeting through Schmidt's musical mentor Guy Chambers.

Grant confirmed this week that he had fathered a child with Chinese actress Tinglan Hong, following what his spokesman called "a fleeting affair" earlier in the year.
