Tax rebate cheque misspelled

So I’ve got this tax rebate cheque but I live abroad and I’m not able to cash it in here. I do however, have an UK account so someone else abroad will have to deposit it into my UK account there. I have family there and they said they could deposit it. I spoke to HMRC and got the cheque nominated to a family member but they mispelled his initials as B when it’s D. The last name is correct. Would the bank still accept this if he explained the situation and showed verification that the cheque was intended for him?
