Every day The Breakfast Show serves up a piping hot dish of extra news. The stories you may have missed but will definitely want to hear!
It seems like the panic-buying fad is almost completely over, but I guess this 4-year-old British boy didn’t get the memo.
The young boy nearly caused “a national crisis”, his dad joked after he managed to stop his toddler from ordering $860 worth of snacks from Tesco! Using his mum’s phone, the cheeky little thing worked on an impressive grocery list using Tesco’s app and even managed to book a delivery slot.
My 4-year-old nearly caused national food shortage this morning. Got hold of mum’s phone while she slept and ordered 990 mini Peperamis, and a combined 1,200 bakewell tarts and Fab ice lollies from Tesco. Total order £451.27. Even booked a delivery slot pic.twitter.com/FKKUM4jyGU

After making his selection, his dad noticed what he was doing and managed to cancel the order just before the final payment step. If dad hadn’t cancelled the order, he would’ve been receiving:
- 990 mini Peperamis
- 120 Viennese Whirls
- 594 Bakewells
- 594 Fabs
- 184 Oranges
- 11 packs of pine nuts
- 4 rashers of bacon
- 24 Cumberland sausages
- 2 cans of deodorant
- 2 packs of Frubes
- 36 packs of Mini Cheddars
- 8 fishcakes
- A pack of strawberries
- A bunch of bananas
When his dad asked him why, he said “I wanted to have more food than everyone else”.
“I told him we didn’t have quite enough money to spend £450 on food and he said that was fine because he had some, and proceeded to pull 14p from his pocket.”
