VIDEO: Bake-Off star thanks Northampton staff who delivered letter from Sri Lanka with just her name on it

The staff at Swan Valley 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.”
