Benedict praises pal Judge Rinder
Judge Rinder, above right, has received a special message from friend Benedict Cumberbatch, left, to celebrate his 1,000th case.
The barrister, whose full name is Robert Rinder, has been hearing small-claims appeals on the ITV daytime programme since 2014.
In a special tribute aired on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, the Doctor Strange star said: “Rob, congratulations on your 1,000th show (sic). I only got up to something like 92 of Hamlet.”
