The actor has a very important role

Benedict Cumberbatch has been spotted kissing a hot blonde in Ibiza.

The Sherlock actor, 37, looked relaxed as he gave Russian model Katia Elizarova – believed to be his girlfriend – a smooch at the wedding of two gay friends.

He was later seen cosying up to Katia, 26, while relaxing on a sun lounger in nothing but a pair of sexy swimming shorts.

Benedict had a special role in the civil ceremony at luxury resort Hotel Hacienda – he officiated the nuptials.

‘It’s a very private, lovely thing to be asked to do,’ said Benedict.

‘Of course I’m going to make a joke after it if it goes well – I do weddings. Next will be children’s parties and bar mitzvahs.

‘I’m a mainly Jewish and gay audience so hopefully they will be lenient towards me.’

Writer Julie Burchill also attended and reckons Benedict did a great job of overseeing his pals’ vows.

‘The hotel was lush, the bridegrooms were beautiful, and the man who married them (to each other) was Benedict Cumberbatch,’ Julie tells The Sun.

‘So yes, it was quite a blast.’
