A husband has been accused of panicking to buy after sharing a Star Wars-themed video of his wife’s long shopping bill.

The man, called Jay, known as @jayandemalou on Tiktok, shared video of his wife Ema-Lou’s grocery store in Newcastle before the third coronavirus lockdown.

In the video, Jay slips his Tesco food receipt over the music from the opening credits of Star Wars to nod to iconic scenes from the franchise.

However, users accused him of being “selfish” after showing the long bill, the Mirror reports.

The video, which has over 2.4 million views on the platform, was captioned: “Most men in the UK will understand.

“When the woman says she needs a ‘closed store’. “

The images received mixed messages from users, with some accusing the family of “panic buying.”

One of them wrote: “I am thinking of selfishness, glad that we were thinking of others during the pandemic”.

Another said: “It will be all the little retirees that will happen now that the panic buying has started. ”

A third commented, “Lucky for those who can afford the overspending… It’s nice of them to be considerate and clear the shelves for those who can’t.

But Jay was quick to respond to the comments, saying: “Show me the panic purchase?” It’s a family store that lasts 4/5 days… we are a big family stuck in the house… need a lot of snacks.

It comes after some stores have started rationing inventory amid fears that panic buying will reach levels seen in the first lockdown.

Aldi has started rationing the toilet paper roll, pasta, flour and eggs as supermarket bosses urge customers to “buy responsibly” and not to panic.

The product limits, which limit buyers to just three of each item, follow similar moves from rival chain Tesco.

It comes after the shelves were laid bare on the first day of Britain’s third national lockdown.
