Not sure of this, but through TCB there is a Western Union link for £9.09 cashback, if you complete an online transfer.
If you do a "Direct to Bank" within UK transfer then there is no charge and should still track, and normally the money is next day clearance.
Just sent my OH a tenner.
Not sure if it will work, but what are you gonna lose?
Looks like it has been amended so that it is now international transfers over the value of £50, although checked and UK to EIRE is no fee, so make a friend in 'Ol bonny Ireland and bounce the money between you's
£9 available at Imutual
