Benedict Cumberbatch not focussing on wedding yet

Benedict Cumberbatch isn't focussing on his wedding.

The 38-year-old actor - who announced his engagement to Sophie Hunter by posting a notice in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of The Times newspaper in July last year - has confessed he isn't ready to start planning their nuptials as he will be too busy filming scenes for BBC crime series 'Sherlock'.

When asked if he had started making preparations for his big day, Benedict told Popsugar at the Palm Springs International Film Festival yesterday (03.01.15): "One thing at a time.

"I'm playing Sherlock now - just about to start - so my main focus is going to be on that."

The 'The Imitation Game' star also admitted that announcing his engagement to the brunette beauty was the "most important news" of his life.

He previously said: "I've had the most important news of my life.

"That's also sort of private, I don't want to talk about that too much. But my engagement to the woman I love is obviously the most important thing of 2014 for me."

Benedict added that Sophie is great at dealing with all the attention he gets from his fans.

He explained: "She's proud of my work, she's proud of me, and she loves me.

"That's the bottom line, isn't it? That's one of the reasons it's a good fit. It could be a really difficult thing, but she's just so in command of it."
