Millionaire retail boss Mike Coupe, who was caught on camera singing "we're in the money" on TV before an interview about a possible Sainsbury's-Argos merger, has halved Argos workers' Christmas bonus to just 5.

Argos' 16,000 shop staff earn a typical 11,931 a year, which contrasts with the 3.9 million Coupe pockets after his bonus soared to 593,000.

Coupe's excuse for cutting the bonus was to bring it in line with Sainsbury's workers who already only get a fiver. Sainsbury's bought Argos for 1.4 billion in 2016.

Sainsbury's has already made moves to cut paid breaks, special rates for Sundays and annual bonuses.

It's only October but Coupe is already auditioning for the role of Scrooge.
