A number of social media users expressed disappointment that they had received items such as feline food and a grill instead of the brand-new games console from the online giant.

An Amazon spokesperson told Sky News: "We're all about making our customers happy, and that hasn't happened for a small proportion of these orders.

"We're really sorry about that and are investigating exactly what's happened.

"We're reaching out to every customer who's had a problem and made us aware so we can put it right. Anyone who has had an issue with any order can contact our customer services team for help."

The affected customers have expressed concern that their consoles have been stolen with the PS5 in huge demand across the UK.
