We've all been there, where you wake up and wonder just what happened the night before after one too many shandies. 

One woman took it to the next level though when she received a lifesize cardboard cut-out of Prime Minister Boris Johnson through the post.

30-year-old Jemma Harvey fortunately saw the funny side when she awoke to find a cardboard cut-out of Boris waiting for her outside her door.

It turns out Jemma had one too many wines after a night on Zoom with friends due to the tier restrictions, and she'd completely forgotten about the order. 

She seems very happy with her purchase, which apparently set her back £30.

Jemma told Metro: "I was scratching my head when there was a delivery following a night drinking on Zoom. I had no idea what the box may contain as I couldn’t remember ordering anything." ‘

"I couldn’t stop laughing when I opened it to find Boris staring at me" she recalls.

Jemma says cardboard Boris is part of her support bubble and is keeping her company during lockdown. "I have to say, the cut out is one of the best things I have ever ordered. It has provided so much entertainment during lockdown. My friends think I am crazy, they even bought me Boris Johnson books and T-shirts for Christmas."

!I have had to pack him away though because I kept forgetting he was up and mistaking him to be a random man in my house! He can come out on special occasions now – such as New Year’s Eve when my friend Michelle Gibson, 36, who is really in my support bubble and I sang with him."
