Why Emma Watson Could Be Getting A £10,000 Fine

When you're worth as much as Emma Watson - the 2014 Sunday Times Rich List revealed she's accrued a cool £30 million since her Hermione Granger days - you probably would have a cleaner to spruce up your digs.

Unfortunately for Emma, this has got her into a spot of trouble.

The 24-year-old British actress is facing a pretty hefty fine after bringing her maid across to the UK from New York to work on her Islington home.

Emma broke the rules of the maid's tourist visa which banned her from working in the UK and she, being the employer and all, faces a £10,000 charge as a result. Youch.

The Harry Potter star's maid was stopped by staff of the UK Boarder Agency. The Metro reports a source for the Home Office said: "An allegation has been received and processed and has been allocated for further action."

Okay, so she let her maid work for her illegally in the UK, but it's worth noting Emma was still paying her cleaner. And let's face it - while a £10,000 fine would floor the majority of us, it's probably no biggie for Watson.
