The 41 year old, who appears opposite her husband in hit U.K. TV drama Sherlock, appeared at a magistrates' court in England this week (beg08Feb16) to plead guilty to two speeding offences. She was fined $870 (£600) and six penalty points were added to her driving licence.

Amanda tweeted about her day in court, telling fans she was "terrified" and branding herself an "idiot" for driving too fast.

"I'm at the magistrates court pleading guilty to a speeding fine. I've never been so terrified in my entire life," she wrote in a post on the social networking website. "I was going 38 (miles per hour) in a 30 (zone). I'm an idiot and, it would seem, a massive scaredy cat... It was two speeding fines. £600 and 6 points... Bang goes my clean licence... 36 in a 30 and 38 in a 30... I'm going at a snail's pace for the next seven years... (Court was) truly terrifying..."
