Meet #chocobatch.

Fans of chocolate and Benedict Cumberbatch, for you, dreams really do come true.

There now exists an edible model of Benedict, rendered in chocolate.

Why, you say? The sculpture was created to celebrate the launch of new Drama channel on UKTV's on demand service, uktvplay. Something about Benedict being voted the tastiest man in TV drama...

 

 

In all honesty, it's a smidge unsettling – the likeness is so accurate that it looks as though real Benedict could be trapped inside the chocolate. The horror!

CHOCOLATE BENEDICT BY NUMBERS:

He weighs in at 40kg

He took 250 hours to sculpt in to shape

A team of 8 were involved in his construction

He is life-size to stands at 6ft tall.

 

If you'd like to visit milk chocolate Benedict then make your way to Westfield Stratford City on Friday April 3.
