Comedian and actor Jason Manford has become a delivery driver with frozen food giant Iceland in the latest twist of his supermarket job hunt.
The star posted an image to his social media account today, showing himself wearing a cap complete with the supermarket’s logo.
Jason was also captured wearing uniform belonging to the frozen food giant, BirminghamLive reports.
He captioned the post: “Funny how life turns out.”
His selfie has received 25,000 likes – and around 700 shares.
Customers must have been surprised to see their shopping being delivered by the actor who recently appeared in BBC TV comedy Scarborough.

A second added: ” Awesome! Well done Jason! Don’t forget to pick up a prawn ring.”
A third posted: ” I’ve always admired your work ethic anyway, but now, in these unprecedented times, I have the upmost respect for you! Such an amazing man!”
Iceland offered Jason the chance to work with the company after his job application to become a Tesco delivery driver amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic was refused.
Stepping up to the plate on social media, the supermarket chain told Jason: “Our door is always open for you.”
The chain then added: “Help us out for the day and we’ll make a donation to the NHS in your name.”
