If you haven’t already clocked on Chocobatch is very similar to Cumberbatch… Benedict Cumberbatch… (Yes, yes, we know you now feel like a bit of an idiot). If you don’t know who he is, because perhaps you’ve been living under a rock, just type his name into Google and prepare to be amazed at the man who plays Sherlock Holmes and who also beat his contemporaries such as Sean Bean, David Tennant, Idris Elba and Damien Lewis in order to be crowned ‘Britain’s Dishiest Dramatic Actor’.
So what is the prize for being ‘Britain’s Dishiest Actor’? You get made into a 6ft, 88 pound chocolate sculpture! Over 500 Belgian chocolate bars were melted down in order to form a realistic life size statue of the actor, along with a team of 8 people to carve him in, which they said, great difficulty as “he’s got quite a thin face but he’s got a large head”. We forgive that large head of yours Benedict, only because it means more chocolate. And the unveiling of Chocobatch couldn’t have come on a better day, what with it being Maundy Thursday and all, we mean what better last supper could any of us ask for?
You can see Chocobatch at Stratford’s Westfields tomorrow!
