But instead she got one addressed to “Benny” and signed “Sexy Soph”.

Mary was said to be “confused and upset” when she opened it.

Recruiter Dan said: “My card arrived and it was addressed correctly. She opened it and looked at it confused.

“I didn’t recognise the cover and thought, ‘Oh, crikey’.

“It’s kind of hilarious but not given the person to whom it was addressed.

“You don’t know how they’re going to react. A shock like this could have given her a heart attack.

“I feel a bit sorry for Benny as he’s probably got a photo of me with my mother-in-law.
