Benedict Cumberbatch was snapped enjoying a night out with pals last night, but all eyes were on one lady in particular, with whom the Sherlock actor held hands for majority of the evening, it seems. Could there be a new romance in store for the star?
Benedict hasn't long returned from Ibiza, but he still managed to hit London town last night and was snapped heading to celeb hotspot Cirque Le Soir with his red headed friend.

The actor kept his night out attire casual, as he was spotted in a simple white t-shirt, faded black jeans, a grey blazer and black high-tops whilst his mystery lady pal looked great in a little black dress.
Meanwhile, it's unclear whether or not the woman in question is the same lady that Cumberbatch has been linked to recently.
According to Now magazine, the Star Trek actor enjoyed some romantic time with Russian model Katia Elizarova, with the pair apparently having shared a kiss on a sun lounger whilst in Ibiza.

The reports of Benedict getting close to Katia comes after the actor ruled out any romance with her when they were first linked last year.
Speaking to the Telegraph's Mandrake at the time, the actor said: "We’re just old friends."
“I can’t say any more than that. Russian is a wonderful language. I’d love to be able to master it.”
