The bishop said: ‘It was from someone I know and when asked my address, I said ‘just send it to the Bishop of Worcester and his sexy wife’.
‘I wasn’t expecting the instructions to be followed! I was very impressed by Royal Mail when the letter arrived.’
The couple just celebrated their four year anniversary, and when they were engaged a picture of them appeared in the local paper.
Dr Inge said said: ‘Someone commented: ‘punching above his weight, methinks..’
‘I’d have to agree: it would be disloyal not to!

‘My wife is a phenomenon in her own right.’
Dr John Inge married H-J at St Katherine’s Church in Holt, near Bath, in January 2018.
He tweeted an image of the front of the letter captioned ‘Good old Royal Mail. This arrived safely yesterday.’ which has been liked over 1,000 times.
‘We were both very amused when it arrived,’ he added.
‘I tweeted it because I like to see fun and informative tweets, not unpleasant ones.’
