Imho Bill is wrong shape for a great tit. (Edit:Actually I can’t really tell after looking more closely)
also let’s and Bill wrong colour....all of which could be totally wrong if it’s leucistic...more importantly because I’m not an expert!
im trying to remember the yellow skin round the base of the bill

anyway someone will probably come and say it’s an escaped something or other shortly :)

you're right about the eye though Derbyfella. I guess that would make it leucistic rather than albino. Cute bird!
