Benedict Cumberbatch's Chocolate Statue Is Chocobatch!

A life-sized chocolate statue of "The
Imitation Game" star Benedict Cumberbatch has
been crafted out of cocoa to celebrate the fact that he has been
voted the dishiest dramatic actor on UKTV.
With the launch of the new drama channel on UKTV's on-demand
service, uktvplay, 2,000 women were asked to name the man they find
the tastiest in TV drama, reports telegraph.co.uk.
Cumberbatch topped the list with 12 percent of the votes, and as
a result, a team of eight people, including a sculptor and a
chocolatier, were commissioned to recreate an edible model of
Cumberbatch out of Belgian milk chocolate.
It took 250 hours to complete the statue, which weighs 40 kg.
The sculpture will be on display to the public at Westfield
Stratford City in London on Friday.
"Broadchurch" star David Tennant was runner-up in the survey,
followed by "Game Of Thrones" hunk Sean Bean.
