British teen is Internet star thanks to uncanny resemblance to Benedict Cumberbatch


We all know about otters looking like Benedict Cumberbatch but did you know there's also a teenager wandering around Norfolk who looks remarkably like the Sherlock star?

Tyler Michell is a 16-year-old from the UK who has found fame as a Cumberbatch-a-like after tagging his Instagram selfies with #Cumberbatch, #Benedict, #Sherlock (etc, etc), and now boasts 13,000 followers.

We don't know about you but we reckon he should pitch to star in Sherlock: The Early Years (that's not a thing, by the way, but it totally should be).

What do you think? Is he a dead ringer for Cumberbatch?
