What is Jason Manford’s net worth? Fans of the comedian were surprised to see him turn up on their doorsteps as an Iceland delivery driver.

Over the course of the last few months, a wealth of celebrities have done their bit to help out.

Whether through donations or beyond, it has been great to see some famous faces help try and raise awareness to a number of causes and do their bit for the communities. Of course, some have been much more creative with their ideas than others.

In the entertainment industry, production has essentially been at somewhat of a standstill due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in more time to work on projects from home, but also find ways to help give back.

In this respect, we’d have to give the crown to Jason Manford…

Although Jason Manford may be worth millions, it hasn’t stopped him from making a rather unexpected career move as of late…

The comedian is at Iceland!

Jason has ditched firing out gags for the time being to get behind the wheel as an Iceland delivery driver, The Sun reports.

The supermarket company offered to donate to two of his chosen charities in exchange for him pulling in a shift. However, his enthusiasm for the role could mean he actually stays on!

In a Facebook post, he expressed: “Thanks to the staff at Iceland Foods for being so welcoming today, was a fun morning delivering to your lovely customers. Thanks for the generous donation to CAFTcharity & The Bread and Butter Thing Manchester.”

Customers were surprised to see him turn up at their doors, uniform and all; as you would be.

The earlier source includes thoughts from Iceland boss Richard Walker:

“Everyone at Iceland is extremely grateful for Jason’s contribution today and he has certainly helped to lift spirits with our customers and heroic colleagues. Our stores are deeply rooted within their local communities, so it’s a real privilege for us to be in a position where we can work with great people like Jason and donate to some worthy causes at the same time.”

We love to see it, but it’s clear Iceland should stick to what they do best after they cracked that “Jason Van-ford” joke. Leave the comedy to Jason!
