Benedict Cumberbatch Thrills Fans At The Chelsea Flower Show - Who Knew He Was Green Fingered?

Benedict Cumberbatch must be a shoe-in for Englishman of the year because yesterday he took his mum, Wanda Ventham to the Chelsea Flower Show in London proving once and for all he's the ultimate gentleman.

Cumberbitches will be quivering the world over when they see pictures of the Sherlock star and his actress mother admiring the displays at the annual show, who knew he was such a fan of gardening?

Looking rather like he'd stumbled out of a garden party, the actor looked chic in a pink shirt, light tan jacket and grey trousers while his gorgeous mum looked striking in blue.

The actor was able to get a sneak peak at this year's offering as he and his mum joined Monty Don on the BBC to officially launch this year's coverage of the show. And it seems he was pretty impressed with what he saw and declared the Telegraph's own garden, "absolutely beautiful".

Nice hat Sherlock, but we prefer the dear stalker (WENN)

He wasn't the only star to make it along on opening day. Jerry Hall, Kirstie Allsopp and the Queen also dropped by.
