These people ruined the Chocobatch

You just couldn't help yourselves, could you? And you ruined it for everyone

Remember the chocolate Benedict Cumberbatch that was painstakingly sculpted recently? As anyone with eyes might have guessed, the UKTV Drama channel project was a huge hit while on display at the Westfield Stratford City shopping centre over the weekend – and fans could not resist getting way too close to it.

Selfie? Fine. Staring in admiration? Completely fine. Licking? Not fine. Snapping fingers off? You stop that right now, child.

In less than four hours, Chocobatch lost a few fingers (thanks to a few kids and that guy in the green T-shirt at 0:49), his bow-tie (is nothing sacred?) and even his nose (the old lady responsible – yes, she was a grandmother – must have thought it was a game of Got Your Nose?). Imagine the horror of Cumbercookies who arrived a little too late only to see the unique sculpture vandalised.

We wonder what Benedict – or Sophie! – thinks of it all.
