He added: ‘Light decorations are a particular favourite. That’s why we decided to launch our Stop, Look, Glisten competition, to encourage people across the UK to take pride in their decorations and share them far and wide.’

The lucky winner will win £1,000 whilst the runners-up will receive a set of 50 Christmas stamps and a framed personalised image.

‘Whilst Christmas lights are a beautiful addition to our communities, it’s important to remember to stay safe when decorating your house and take the appropriate precautions,’ said David.

‘Also, keep in mind how your decorations might impact those visiting you – especially your postman or postwoman!’
