When you purchase something for a little one that they love, it can be disappointing to see the item get ruined.

One mum recently purchased a pair of Marvel superhero pyjamas from Marks & Spencer for her son Bailey, which he thought were absolutely brilliant.

However, after only a few days of wear, Alexandra Gordon noticed a hole in the knee of the bottoms.

Unimpressed, she messaged M&S to find out if there was anything they could do to help and the response she received from a customer service worker named Steve absolutely blew her away.

Alexandra shared a screenshot of the "amazing" reply on the Facebook group, Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas, where it quickly went viral.

She captioned the post: "I complained to M&S about some PJs I bought for my son Bailey and this is the reply. Made my day."

Following her complaint, the message from Steve read: "Hi Alexandra, I was originally going to go through the usual process of 'Please return these to your local store so that our team can ' !!! – We don't have time for that.

"If your little superhero is without his Super Marvel PJs – how will he be able to save the world and protect us from any supervillain attacks?!?

"THIS IS AN EMERGENCY!!! So I've reshipped a new pair of the PJs and they are due to be delivered tomorrow – and if you are wondering what that strange breeze was just now, it was the world breathing a collective sigh of relief that your little Superhero is keeping us all safe and sound once again!

"Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great week! Steve #M&SAssemble."
