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

Cumberbatch topped the list with 12% 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 here on Friday.

Broadchurch star David Tennant was runner-up in the survey, followed by Game Of Thrones hunk Sean Bean.
