When TV host Graham asked Benedict if he would be starring in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’, he replied: “No comment.”

The film’s director JJ Abrams is notoriously secretive and keen to keep details of the film under wraps.

However, Benedict continued: “I went to the set. It was incredible.

"I probably shouldn't be saying these things."

During the show, Benedict also delighted fans when he came face-to-face with his own waxwork.

The creation was unveiled by Madame Tussauds earlier this week and its only fair that ‘The Imitation Game’ star got to give it the once over first.

At present, a number of stars are confirmed for ‘Star Wars: Epsiode VII’, including Lupita N’yongo and ‘Girls’ star Adam Driver.
