“As I see it, if you can stage a daring nighttime raid into a crowded urban area in Kandahar and then precisely deliver a 4-lb mortar shell down a chimney, then those are exactly the right skills for getting enough Coco Pops and Asparagus to Britain’s consumers,” UK Delivery Crisis Tsar Simon Williams told us.

Reports suggest that the new series of Channel 4’s ‘Who Dares Wins’ will feature new tests in their most challenging environment yet, including driving an HGV for 14 hours the entire length of the country without a toilet break, manning a till in Aldi for a day without murdering anyone, and surviving in the harsh environment of a regional distribution centre just outside Doncaster for a week with only a branch of Greggs from which to forage.
