Katie Hopkins thinks Sophie Hunter is a plain Jane and believes Benedict Cumberbatch thinks that too

Katie Hopkins. Known for constantly uttering controversial words. And she’s back with a statement to rile the Cumberbitches of the world.

Because the former The Apprentice contestant reckons Benedict Cumberbatch‘s fiancee is not all that and a bag of chips.

Katie claims Benedict might have gone for a bit of a boring by picking actress and director Sophie Hunter as his future wife.

Benedict has broken the heart of Cumberbitches everywhere by agreeing to marry Sophie Hunter. She is what we call a plain Jane,’ Katie bluntly put it.

Ouch! We wonder what the 36-year-old actress would say to Katie about that.

She added that 38-year-old Benedict‘s recent comments might have been a hint for saying he is about to pop the question to a lady who doesn’t have a very colourful vibe.

Her Sun newspaper column continued: ‘The Sherlock star says “intelligence and an ability to a hold a conversation” are the most important qualities in a woman. This is his way of saying yes, indeed – she is a plain Jane.’

FYI Katie, Miss Hunter is not only a pro on the piano but she’s also a keen horse rider dah-ling.
 Sophie loves to sing and has even released an album titled The Isis Project. Don’t go trying to work out the lyrics though – the whole thing is in French!


Perhaps referring to Sophie, he said in a previous interview that his ideal lady isn’t someone who has to get dolled up to look good.

Following the announcement of their impending nuptials, her relatives shared their delight at having Benedict a part of the family soon.

‘We are very happy for them. It’s a really fabulous day. It’s only just been announced so we don’t know any more but it’s lovely news,’ her mum told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

Her brother was pretty chuffed too.

‘We’re all very happy for Soph – it’s really exciting,’ he chimed in.
