In a social media video, Joshua noted how he allowed his 16-year-old cousin to experience ‘what £1.1million feels like.’

After speaking to the shop assistant who informed him about the item he was wearing, AJ said: “This right here is £1.1million…”

He then turned back to the assistant and joked: “I’ll take five of these please.”
