Is this Sherlock star banned from Twitter?!

The star of Sherlock and The Hobbit, Martin Freeman has apparently been banned from Twitter – by his wife.

Martin's wife, actress Amanda Abbington who also plays his wife Mary on the series, says that he would share too many unpopular opinions on the social media site.

“He will never tweet,’ says Amanda. “He would destroy his reputation.”

“He’d say something he regrets. He says things he regrets every day at home and I say, “That, right there, is why you can’t do Twitter!”

“He is very vocal about stuff so we have to be careful.”
