Lucy Liu has revealed she signed up for TV show Elementary because she wanted to work with Jonny Lee Miller.

The Charlie's Angels actress plays Joan Watson in the series, shown in the UK on Sky Living HD, while British star Jonny plays Sherlock Holmes, and she confessed that although she had her doubts about the part she signed up because she was so keen to work with the actor, reported Us Weekly.

"I know it sounds crazy, but I was really looking forward to doing a comedy. But one of the main attractions was Jonny," Lucy told Emmy magazine.

Jonny added that the pair have a great working relationship - although he joked that he has to explain his humour to the American star.

"If you're going to spend a lot of time with someone, you really need to be able to get on with them," he said.

"It's nice because we have a very similar sense of humour. Still, you usually have to explain jokes to her about three or four times."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

A friend will tell you about a job opening at their company. This lead will turn into a dead end. Don't set your hopes on this possibility. Instead of looking for another job, concentrate on fulfilling your duties. Tempers are running high. The last thing you want is to catch the attention of an irritable superior. If someone does criticise your work, remain silent. These remarks may be terribly unfair, but defending yourself will only make the situation worse. Breathe deep. This, too, shall pass.More
