A Tesco buyer was surprised after ordering a bag of apples only for Tesco to replace the fruit with an iPhone.
Nick James, 50, picked up his store as usual from his local Tesco Extra in Twickenham when staff told him there was a ‘surprise’ in his bag.

Mr. James was surprised to receive a free iPhone SE in his Click and Collect order.

He told the Mirror: “I half expected the surprise to be an Easter egg or something – I was a little shocked to say the least. “

Tesco is offering free Apple iPhones, AirPods and Samsung devices this week as part of a “super substitutes” promotion.
