    This:

    Extra months on your passport which bring its validity over 10 years won't count.
    If you renewed a 10-year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your new passport’s expiry date, making it valid for more than 10 years. But these months WON'T count towards the six months you need left on your passport from your date of arrival.
    Makes this make more sense now:

    Remember that as MoneySavingExpert first revealed in September, if you renew your passport before it expires, validity from your old passport now won't carry forward onto your new one - so don't renew too far in advance of expiry.
    Though I've got a 10+ yr passport now with an expiry date which is potentially not "the" expiry date depending on what I'm using it for and how things pan out.
