Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch was joined by his fiancée Sophie Hunter on the red carpet last night - but he was remaining coy about their wedding plans!

Sophie opted to wear a long red patterned gown with full skirt to the glitzy event, while Benedict looked seriously dapper in a black suit, white shirt and simple black skinny tie.

Fans have been desperate to catch a glimpse of Sophie's engagement ring, however she kept her hands firmly behind her back while posing for pictures. Boo!

While on the red carpet, Benedict was asked by a reporter from Good Morning Britain how their wedding plans were coming along. Unsurprisingly, the coy actor remained tight-lipped, saying only: "They're coming along well, thank you!"

It's no surprise he wasn't prepared to spill the beans. Shunning the modern day way of declaring his engagement, Benedict last month opted for a more discreet way by announcing his news in The Times newspaper.

It read: "The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London."
