Waitress Alison said it was so large the driver could barely carry it.

The mum of two, who is married to brickie Michael, 55, in Bourne, Lincs, gesê: “Talk about sledgehammer to crack a nut.

“That box was completely bonkers. It was so big it was working against the Amazon driver.

“He laughed when I told him what was in it. Even a paper bag would’ve been better!”
