The service will deliver to France, Germany, Spain, the United States, Canada, Australia as well as New Zealand, which according to M&S, makes them the first major retailer to deliver there.

It will not include furniture, kitchens, technology, electricals, wine and food, but will have selected items from the M&S home range.

It cost £10 to France, Germany and Spain, £20 to the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand through Royal Mail and Parcel Force.
M&S will process the orders through their website www.marksandspencer.com
