She teased him with her naked body, he showed off his sleuth skills - could fiction become reality?  Sherlock actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Lara Pulver are rumoured to be dating after recently breaking off long term relationships.

The episode 'A Scandal in Belgravia', where Lara appeared naked before Benedict and costar Martin Freeman, attracted 100 complaints at the time, but perhaps Benedict wasn't one of them?

The couple were seen flirting at last Thursdays Specsavers Crime Thriller Awards where Benedict picked up an award for Sherlock and took Lara as his plus one.

A source told The Daily Mail: "They were completely engrossed with each other, taking photographs, holding hands, cuddling and laughing. Lara was following Benedict around the room. They were very affectionate together and Lara even tweeted a photograph of Benedict with his award."

Both actors have recently come out of long term relationships.  Lara divorced actor Joshua Dallas last year while Benedict broke off a 12 year relationship with fellow actor Olivia Poulet. 

We hope third wheel to their relationship, Watson - played by Martin Freeman - doesn't come between the happy couple.
