Earlier in the day, the 'Sherlock' star received a rock star welcome in Japan as he arrived at Arita International Airport in Chiba to find hoards of fans had camped out to welcome him, brandishing homemade banners.

Cumberbatch has a massive following in the Far East thanks to his role as eccentric detective Sherlock Holmes in the BBC drama.

The 36-year-old actor took time to politely greet his excited fans - known as Cumberb****es - posing for pictures and chatting to the local media.

The third series of Sherlock - which sees the great detective apparently return from the dead after he leapt from a building in the season two finale - was recently filmed in London.

It will air at the beginning of next year.
