In the clip, he headed to Tesco to check out the toy sales and stumbled upon a bargain he couldn’t leave on the shelves.

Sam describes himself as a “young entrepreneur” and says he is on track to become a millionaire.

He said: “Was seventy five quid now £18.50,” as he spotted the Lego Friends Sea Rescue Boat.

“What about this one?” he said as he saw a different Lego set on the shelf called the Lego Friends Skate Park.

“£45 now £11. What the. I’m gonna have to grab all of them,” he explained, stunned by the low price.

He quickly cleared the shelves of all the bargains and stashed them in his trolley.

When he got to the car he went and scanned the items on an app called BuyBotGo which revealed how much they would sell for on Amazon and how many times people had bought them in the last month.
