A DPD driver has been dubbed the UK’s ‘cheeriest delivery man’ after he was caught on camera singing and dancing as he dropped off a Christmas package.

The driver had no idea his impromptu concert, where he also sang ‘what a lovely Sunday morning’, was being recorded as he approached the house. 

Before he even makes his way through the gate, the driver can be heard banging the parcel and singing his own lyrics. 

After ringing the bell, the driver, who is reportedly called Arnaud, continues singing and dancing until someone answers the door.  

Gemma McPherson was expecting a pair of trainers to be delivered when her day was brightened up by the festive courier. 

She posted the clip of the driver, based at DPD’s Thames depot to a local Facebook group on December 8, and it now has 3.2K views.

She wrote: ‘Our DPD delivery driver today. So cheery and festive… will make you smile!’

One said: ‘I saw him the same day. He was singing Christmas songs on my road and saying ‘Merry Christmas’ to anyone that walked past. It was so cute.’

Another added: ‘Such a happy guy, he delivered to me yesterday and was singing away bless him.’ 

Now the Bexleyheath community is calling for DPD to make the jolly worker ’employee of the month’.
