A MICHAEL Jackson dance has made a postman from Hatfield an overnight internet sensation.

Mike Izzard, of Robins Way, filmed his routine to Jackson's hit Billie Jean at the Royal Mail delivery office in St Albans at the end of May.

After a work colleague posted the footage on video-sharing website YouTube and, after selling a number of DVD copies to his family and friends, he has managed to raise nearly �600 for the RSPCA.

The 36-year-old is now set to hand a cheque over to the charity's Southridge Animal Centre, in South Mimms.
