“Too soon?” said the George Shuttleworth actor.
“Ebay has no patience!! #BestPurchaseEver.”

If the life-size singing Santa remains outside, his neighbors will undoubtedly be surprised.
The regular on the cobblestones tweeted the news to his 61,000 followers.
“Ah Tony, Santa is amazing, what outfit is he wearing for Halloween?” one fan asked.
Others were less enthusiastic, with one saying, “Oh @TonyMaudsley1 it’s far too soon.”
Tony received a lot of hilarious responses as well as some warnings regarding the new purchase’s noise.
“I have one of these Tony, they’re bl**dy amazing except I put masking tape over the sensor on the front since it gave me a heart attack at 2am going to the bathroom,” a third said.
Another fan recalled the star’s appearances on the smash show Benidorm.
“That reminds me of the Benidorm inflatable scene,” he remarked. Every Christmas, one street near me puts Blackpool illuminations to shame; you can definitely see it from space.”
