As promised last week, yesterday Benedict Cumberbatch appeared on the BBC’s coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show with his mum Wanda Ventham, talking about gardening, his roof terrace, and his memories of playing in London parks.

There’s really not much that needs saying about it, for Cumberbatch fans, to watch him strolling about looking at lupins with Wanda is just the most adorable thing ever.

And here’s a solo interview from an earlier point in the programme:
