Appearing on This Morning today, the mystery gifter said she loves hearing villagers trying to work out who she is
Doorbell footage captured the kind elf delivering large bunches of flowers on the 8th of December in a residential street but she says she’s not ready to reveal her identity just yet.
She told Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes on This Morning today how she first started after feeling sorry for some OAPS in the village and decided to start with the random acts of kindness.
With her face and voice disguised, and wearing a silver haired wig and Christmas hat, she explained: ‘I heard about some local elderly residents who were not having such a great time – they were getting a bit of grief and that’s what spurred me on.
The elf, who sat with her back to the camera throughout, said: ‘I wanted to show them that they weren’t on their own and there are good people around.’
Keeping mum: She told hosts Rochelle and Vernon that ‘Ring doorbell is not my friend but luckily my identity hasn’t been revealed’
She’ll make her last delivery on Christmas Eve…and may well reveal her identity in January

‘I can hear people talking about it when I’m out and about. The atmosphere in the village is amazing at the minute.’
And she’s not sure yet whether she’ll let her fellow residents know her real identity. She joked: ‘Ring doorbell is not my friend but luckily my identity hasn’t been revealed.
‘I’m going up to Christmas Eve and who knows. I might reveal, I might not!’
