The staff at Swan Valley, Northampton, are used to vague addresses but it was a first for them when they recieved a letter intended for Nadiya Hussain, who has recently moved to Milton Keynes.

But after a bit of detective work at the mail centre, together with local knowldege, they were able to post it through her door.

Nadiya, said: “All it had on it was; Nadiya Hussain, winner of Great British Bake Off 2015 - I don’t know where she lives, but I’m sure the Royal Mail will find her!’ and that got to me all the way from Sri Lanka.

“That was a little bit bizzare, you don’t realise how someone can just pluck out your address.

“I think that goes to show how well the Royal Mail did.”

Nadiya was at Royal Mail’s Northampton depot to launch the Post Early Campaign for Christmas.

The campaign encourages people to send their Christmas cards and parcels in good time before the last posting dates to assist postmen and women at their busiest time of the year.

UK latest recommended posting dates for Christmas 2015 are:

Saturday December 19 for Second Class mail

Monday December 21 for First Class mail

Wednesday December 23 for Special Delivery
