"They'll be having it soon because they'll be hungry and stuff, taste the BAFTAs they said, it'll be a piece of cake!"

Although the British actor appeared in good spirits, although slightly red-faced at the shout-out, the awkwardness appeared to subside as the pair shared two stunning snaps together on Wednesday.

Taking to her Instagram Rebel captioned the photos: "The most excellent: Cumberbatch (who plays a 1920’s cowboy…in my dreams last night jk) in THE POWER OF THE DOG and @troykotsur who melts your heart in CODA! Well done fellas!"

Fans were quick to comment on the reunion and couldn't help sharing how good the pair look together. One follower wrote: "What a POWER couple, look at those grins xx." Another wrote: "U guys would make a handsome couple."

One fan wrote: "Beautiful inside and out," while another fan said, "Red is so great on you" with a red love heart emoji. Another fan wrote: "Holy moly" and another replied to the post saying: "Amazing."
