Benedict fesses up to dyeing his hair to play Sherlock

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.’

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