In what has to be one of the oddest stories I've posted in my 22 months working for BC, UKTV has commissioned a life-size chocolate statue of Benedict Cumberbatch. If there was a video to go with it I would have thought this to be an April Fool's joke.
A life-size chocolate sculpture of the acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch has been unveiled following a national poll which named the star as Britain's dishiest TV drama actor.
The Sherlock star beat off strong competition from Broadchurch's David Tennant, and Homeland's Damien Lewis to claim the tasty title ahead of the forthcoming Easter weekend break.
The research, which surveyed 2000 British women, and subsequent chocolate sculpture, were specially commissioned to celebrate today's launch of TV channel Drama on UKTV's on demand service,http://uktvplay.uktv.co.uk/
