This Morning: Nathan John-Baptiste suffered a technical gaffe when his phone kept buzzing during the interview [ITV]
Nathan John-Baptiste has taken control of his own small business after a chat with a millionaire inspired him to go into business and sell sweets to fellow schoolmates.
He opened a tuck shop in the boys’ toilets and it proved so popular that he collected orders via Snapchat.
And his notifications are still proving to be incredibly busy as This Morning viewers noticed that the 15 year old’s phone kept going off throughout the interview.
One amused user wrote: “Anyone else hear this kids phone going off. Someone’s popular on SnapChat. #ThisMorning.”

Even host Phillip Schofield noticed what was going on and joked with him at the end of the interview that he could “go and check his phone now”.
Looking slightly embarrassed, Nathan blustered an apology and smiled before the chat was over.
