A Crayford man has received almost 800,000 hits on YouTube after taking part in a Tesco Mobile competition.

Shaun Tipple, 29, took part in the company’s #nojoke campaign, along with four other unsuspecting customers.

The participants were tasked with changing their friends and families’ perception of the Tesco Mobile network.

Each applicant was given a mobile phone and filmed as they were asked to persuade someone they knew to change network, with only the promise of a surprise as bait.

Shaun emerged victorious after he persuaded one of his friends to change network in the quickest time - and his reward was a luxury holiday with the friend who took the bait.
