Tesco shoppers were delighted yesterday after a cashier glitch saw them being able to buy a pizza AND a dessert for just £1.

When a customer went to a self-service till, they were able to get away with buying the goods for the small price, and some even claimed to get the deal for 85p.

The supermarket launched a meal deal in the UK for a large Pizza Express pizza and two Gu luxury desserts for £5, only when customers went to purchase the items, they were only charged a fraction of the actual price.

Of course, as word spread, more and more people took advantage of the glitch and shared pictures on social media. One particular snap saw 15 pizzas bought altogether. 

According to the Daily Mirror's journalist Emma Munbodh, the mix-up happened because Tesco's Brand Match guarantee only works when you buy ten items or more in one go.

A Tesco spokesperson said: "We are correcting this error, but will continue to offer the meal deal for £5."
