Rob Hams it up
BENEDICT Cumberbatch has praised his old pal Judge Rinder on his 1,000th case.
Barrister Robert Rinder has been hearing small-claims appeals on his ITV daytime programme since 2014. In a tribute on TV’s Good Morning Britain yesterday, Doctor Strange star Cumberbatch said: “Rob, congratulations on your 1,000th show (sic). I only got up to something like 92 of Hamlet, I couldn’t imagine how you feel playing Judge Rinder every day. Well done, we love you.”
Rinder, who was best man at Cumberbatch’s wedding to Sophie Hunter in 2015, joked: “It’s similar, isn’t it? Playing Hamlet and dealing with a case about a man in a lime green mankini? Very, very similar.”
LONG RUN Robert Rinder
