A tweet about Benedict Cumberbatch has sent vegan Sherlock fans into a frenzy.

The tweet suggests that the British actor – who recently played the role of the famous detective in the hit TV show – is now vegan.

High profile

Well known activist Kate Louise Powell re-tweeted a post, saying: “It seems that Benedict Cumberbatch has also gone vegan! Another high profile celebrity.”

The original tweet, (in which Powell blanked out the name), says: “My girlfriend and I just got to serve Beneditch Cumberbatch tonight. He’s vegan.”

Another used added: “My face enlightened [sic] when his wife was ordering and said ‘my husband is vegan’.”

Now all we need is confirmation from the man himself…
