Benedict Cumberbatch has confessed to being a natural redhead

You don't need Sherlock Holmes' powers of deduction to work out Benedict Cumberbatch has been at the hair dye. 

Benedict's Cumberbitches will know the sexy actor's a natural redhead. 

Benedict confesses, 'My hair's been dyed quite a bit darker. I'm auburn and that's just not right for Sherlock. He's a creature of the night.'

'Sherlock's got a dark, sociopathic side to him. The archetypal image of him is that he's a slick-looking, dark-haired gentleman with aquiline features.'

So, Cumberbabes, do you prefer brooding Benedict dark or red? Let us know...
