Benedict Cumberbatch has been helping Judge Rinder sort out his Strictly dance face

It's all about drama, apparently


Judge Rinder is not only a successful judge and TV personality, he’s also sweeping gracefully through this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.


But the main qualm of the judges – well, Craig Revel Horwood – is his face. Or, to be more specific, the weird and wonderful facial expressions he pulls as he glides across the dancefloor.

Luckily Rinder is best buddies with Benedict Cumberbatch – who once complained about his own stiff hips – and the Oscar nominee has offered some advice.

“‘He did help me with some faces for my Paso Doble, to get into the dramatic performance of it,” Rinder told the It Takes Two spin-off show, “and we improved that week, so…”

This isn’t the first time Cumberbatch has weighed in on the performance of his former best man, as he previously gave a hilarious commentary to Radio One.


Let’s hope it’s not long before the Doctor Strange star pays a visit to the dancefloor to watch his friend in action.
