One Brighton-based chocolatier has made it possible for you have a cheeky nibble of the actor's face (while you're binge-watching Sherlock perhaps).

The 400 gram "Cumberbunny" consists of a rabbit torso, two huge bunny ears and the star's face and it's the creation of Jen Lindsey-Clark, who worked with sculptors Plunge Productions to perfect the star's features.

It's available in white, milk or dark chocolate and comes with an edible 22 carat gold bow tie and "lustre dust." One Cumberbunny will set you back £50 — but, hey, that's a small price to pay to have your very own BC to savour over Easter, right?

Lindsey-Clark, who made a life-sized version of Cumberbatch in chocolate last year, explained why she thinks the married actor and dad-of-one is so popular.

"He's an interesting character," she told the Daily Mail. "He's a great actor and English gent and he's also making the most of his celebrity status by being able to put his political views across and making the most of his moment in a very cool way."

She also revealed why she loves working with chocolate to create quirky sculptures: "I love the challenges it can bring — you never know what to expect. I also love the fact that if it goes wrong I can melt it down and start again."

The chocolate master admitted that sending a Cumberbunny to BC himself might be "weird" but said she was planning to send one to his mum as an Easter treat.
