Hoff's English lover
09:30 31 August 2006
David Hasselhoff is on the prowl for an intelligent English girlfriend.
The former 'Baywatch' actor wants to put his recent divorce from Pamela Bach, his wife of 16 years, behind him and is planning on finding a "career-orientated chick" when he comes to the UK next month.
He said: "I'm coming to England in September and I want to find myself a beautiful girlfriend. But I don't want some dumb blonde. I'd like a woman who is really intelligent.
"I saw this girl recently who must have stepped out of the office during her lunch break and was wearing work clothes and glasses, and I thought to myself, 'That's what I want, a chick who is career-orientated.'"
Hasselhoff's previous trips to Britain have not been without incident.
In July, the star was banned from boarding a plane after staff decided he was "unfit" to travel due to intoxication.
Earlier that month, it was also claimed that Hasselhoff went on a drunken rampage at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships - a story he has denied.
In June, he underwent emergency surgery after he severed a tendon in his hand in a bizarre shaving accident involving a chandelier.
