The pair, who host the hit ‘Sh**ged. Married. Annoyed.’ podcast, visited an Amazon fulfilment centre to help pack orders for small business, Dock & Bay, before heading out in a delivery van to drop off orders to surprised customers.

A hilarious video captured their behind-the-scenes experience as they got to grips with locating items and came face-to-face with Amazon’s robots.

Their visit, which celebrated ahead of Amazon Prime Day on June 21 and 22, also saw the pair meet with Amazon small business seller, Andy Jefferies from Dock & Bay.

Chris and Rosie Ramsey said: ‘’Before today we had no idea that over half of the products sold on Amazon were from small and medium businesses, so it was great to meet Andy and hear more about how retailing on the site has positively impacted thousands of UK businesses like Dock & Bay.

"With a host of artisan sellers and innovators to choose from, and with the added incentive of receiving a £10 credit just for supporting small businesses, there’s no reason not to check out the small businesses selling on Amazon ahead of Prime Day.

“As a family of four, including young boys, you wouldn’t believe how often we shop on Amazon.

”Especially as we’ve recently moved into a new home in a rural village.

"Luckily our Prime membership means we get our stuff delivered the next day - which is great.

"Every year we look out for Prime Day and can’t wait to have a browse on June 21 and 22."

The new jobs will be among 10,000 created nationwide by the online giant, taking its UK workforce total to 55,000 by the end of 2021.

Customers will receive £10 credit to spend on Prime Day when they spend £10 on small business products in Amazon’s store until June 20.
