Benedict Cumberbatch is Engaged

Sorry ladies: you can pack up and go home.

Widely acknowledged heartthrob, Sherlock Holmes Benedict Cumberbatch, has announced his engagement to Sophia Hunter, his 36 year old girlfriend.

If you're wondering if Hunter is truly worthy of the bizarrely attractive Cumberbatch, the answer is: totally. Hunter is an Oxford graduate, an award-winning theatre director, has recorded her own French language album, and has made a name for herself as an actor. She met Cumberbatch on the set of the 2009, Burlesque Fairytales and she even had a role in the 2004 adaptation of Vanity Fair.

By the way, if you're wondering just how British this engagement announcement was, it reads as follows: "Mr BT Cumberbatch and Miss SI Hunter: The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London".

We can assume that Miss SI Hunter will be joining Mr BT Cumberbatch on the promotional tour of his new film, The Imitation Game, in which he plays Alan Turing. It's now officially "Hug a Cumberbitch Day" – his enormous fan club will definitely need some consoling.
