I don't know for certain, but there is evidence to suggest that Business isn't as well regarded as Lit so it seems an unnecessary risk if you want to go for such highly competitive universities, though ultimately it is your choice and the A is more important than anything else if you don't think you'd get an A in Lit. For UCL it seems a lot goes on the LNAT, check this year's applicant thread for the details as I don't know them. My A Levels were History, French and Spanish (and General Studies but doesn't really count).
In terms of being A*AA I just looked at the websites, LSE and KCL were both A*AA this year and UCL lists that as the offer here: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/laws/prospectiv...ex.shtml?entry

Wots lnat? Also english is rubbish teacher and prob wotn get grade
If you won't get the grade then fair enough do Business, but beware that there may be unpublished 'blacklists', similar to the published Cambridge and LSE ones, at other unis, as Michael321 says. However, getting A*AA is the priority for those unis so if you don't think you'll get that with Lit do Business (though don't you have a 5th option?).

They're fine, but from experience, I really suggest taking 4 - having 5 A-levels really won't make any difference, and it will be a waste of time and put a strain on you in exam period. If you feel you can take 4 up at A2 then go for it. People put too much weight on what subjects they take anyway, I wouldn't worry about it too much - my mate has offers for Law at Russell group uni's and has taken Business studies... All those A-levels are considered 'strong' so you'll be fine. Just make sure you enjoy the subjects - That's been my fatal flaw, I've hated every minute of A-levels as I have no interest in what I'm studying so choose wisely!
