Mum in hysterics at package she ordered online after one too many wines

A mum-of-two was left in hysterics when she opened an unexpected parcel that she had ordered whilst drunk.

After a tipsy Zoom night with her pals, Jemma Harvey, 30, had ordered a life-size cut out of Britain’s prime minister Boris Johnson.

The stay-at-home mum from Withal, Essex, says she couldn’t be happier with the £30 cardboard cutout as it’s kept her entertained whilst isolating alone.

Jemma said: “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.”

Jemma, who is a single mum, jokes that Boris Johnson is now in her support bubble.

However, she has since had to dismantle the cardboard cut out as she once mistook it for an intruder at night.

She said: “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.”

Jemma admits she is a ‘massive fan’ of Boris Johnson and is chuffed with her memorabilia.

She said: “A lot of people dislike him, but I think he is great.

“It isn’t his fault we have to stay in.

“I just wish people would do as [they’re] told so we can get back to normal!”
