image for Brian Ferry Becomes Postman
Sadly Ronnie Corbett was trapped inside and couldn't complete his round

Brian Ferry has become a postman. Appalled at the threat to the future of the Royal Mail the former Roxy Music front man decided it was time to take action. He has been working on a new version of the Postman Pat song with Brian eno and hopes to release it soon. "It's more avant garde than the original, with lots of electronics and a great sax solo."

Ferry has had his uniform specially manufactured by Marks and Spencer and he certainly cuts a dash as he strolls down the high street carrying his mail bag. He hopes to recruit several other celebrities. Elton John has already accepted the Yellow Brick Road round, whilst Bono has discovered that he can get a tax break if he works part time as a postman. Many others will be recruited in the following weeks as the Royal Mail becomes trendy again.

Have you got a famous postman? If so the spoof would like to know. Text the name of your famous postman to 9293 and you could win a Liverpool FC beach ball.
