No wedding gifts for Benedict Cumberbatch
Benedict Cumberbatch and long-term girlfriend Olivia Poulet will not be receiving any wedding gifts after it was revealed the pair have split.
The Sherlock Holmes star began dating his actress girlfriend ten years ago when they met while studying at Manchester University - however insiders have claimed they are not surprised about the separation.
A friend of the couple said: "They were together such a long time but it just wasn't working any more."
The Daily Mail wrote that just months ago, Cumberbatch had been discussing having children with his partner - who is best known for her role as Emma in the Thick of It.
Meanwhile, the Old Harrovian's publicist told the newspaper that the pair have split amicably.
Another high-profile pair that are not likely to be seeing wedding gifts this year is Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, as the pair decided to end their relationship last week.
