Sainsbury’s boss Mike Coupe was caught singing to himself between TV interviews, regarding the merger of Sainsbury’s and ASDA.
He sang: “We’re in the money while sipping on a coffee from Cafe Nero.
Sainsbury’s and Walmart-owned Asda have agreed terms for a merger worth some £12bn.
He later apologised for the ‘unfortunate choice of song’
At least 75 ASDA stores could close in merger with Sainsbury’s, according to new analysis.
The recently-announced merger will create Britain’s biggest supermarket chain, but regulators could be looking to see how many Asda stores are in close proximity to Sainsbury’s before giving it the go-ahead.

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
