Woman farts during audition to be new voice of Tesco checkouts

Woman farts during audition to be new voice of Tesco checkouts

Tesco is hosting auditions which could see you win 10,000 Clubcard points

A woman's fart has gone viral after she broke wind while auditioning to be the new voice of Tesco checkouts. People have been left in absolute stitches:

The supermarket giant is welcoming people to audition to become the new voice of Tesco checkouts, with the winner also getting 10,000 Clubcard points.

Previously, the voice of self checkouts was by Eastenders actor Helena Breck.

However, her voice was replaced in 2015 by a male actor.

It now seems that the UK retailer is looking for a change - and TikToker Grace Fricker has brilliantly given her own twist on the audition.

The way the audition works is that a virtual checkout voice asks you questions about the store and you have to answer in an appropriate Tesco checkout tone.

The virtual checkout clerk asks 'What noise do I make when you scan something?'

To which, Grace replies with a loud mono-tone fart.


After she lets one rip, the clerk asks: "Could you do that again please?"

She replies: "No because I'll s**t myself."

Commenting on the viral post, one person said: "It’s the laughing at her own fart for me."

Another added "LOOOOOL ‘could you do that again please’."

"I don’t think I’d cope if the machines let one rip every time I scanned something," a third person joked.

A fourth thought: "@tesco if this ain't the voice by next week i’m never using my clubcard again…"

"Not what I was expecting but the delivery was exquisite," someone else said.


"Did you just time the fart," one person asked.

To which Grace says: "The entire TikTok was straight off the bat, I was acc being serious at the start but then could feel the fart and it went from there."

A Tesco spokesperson said: "Audition to become the new voice of Tesco checkouts by duetting with me & including #TescoVoiceOfCheckout. You could win 10,000 Clubcard points."

Speaking on the decision to open more self-checkouts, a Tesco spokesperson said: “Our colleagues and the friendly service they provide are absolutely vital to our stores and will always be on hand to help our customers, whether they are checking out at one of our colleague-operated or self-service checkouts.

“We first introduced self-service checkouts nearly 20 years ago to give our customers a choice and our stores have both types of checkout.”

GlobalData UK retail research director, Patrick O'Brien, said: "While the usual stated reason is to free up time for employees to provide more valuable services to customers, the reality is of course that supermarkets want to save costs, and as labour costs rise and the tech gets cheaper and more reliable, it becomes too enticing an option."
