A mum who was frustrated with constant PPI phone calls decided to the pass them over to her two-year-old son to keep him entertained.

Little Alexander Grantham, from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, was captured on camera by mum, Hollie Abrey, on April 2, enjoying a chat with the PPI call handler, even having a little giggle to himself.

Hollie, a stay at home mum, said: “I am always receiving calls from PPI and I usually give the phone to Alexander to talk to them because I am not interested in what they have to say and Alexander loves talking on the phone to people.

“Alexander answered the phone and started speaking to them for a couple of minutes and I think whoever was on the other side of the phone eventually knew I gave the phone to my son because he was asking for my child’s name.

“Alexander eventually wanted to hang up on them saying goodbye but ended up hanging up by kissing the hang up button on the screen.”

“He has an amazing character, he makes everyone laugh and is very chatty, especially on the phone, when I receive a call on my phone he takes it off me and just walks around chatting to whoever’s on the other line.”
