Video: Hungry shoppers nibble and lick Benedict Cumberbatch

Or, Benedict CHOCObatch if you'd prefer...


Who doesn’t lick an edible statue when you nip out to the shops?

Hungry shoppers that seem to be cool with looking weird the middle of a vast mall got the chance to lick and bite Benedict Cumberbatch after he was voted ‘dishiest TV drama’ actor.

Don’t be too alarmed though: It wasn’t the real Benedict, but a life-size replica, made entirely out of chocolate.

The six foot sculpture was made out of 40kgs of chocolate went on display at Westfield Stratford City on Good Friday after a poll of 2,000 British women revealed Benedict as our dishiest actor.

We know: It was news to us that terms like ‘dishiest actor’ are still being used in the wild.
