One Vodafone user is sure to have soiled himself after receiving his recent mobile phone bill. Will Pierce received a mobile Internet bill of a massive £22,000 after downloading TV episodes while on vacation.

The man and his son downloaded episodes of Kavanagh QC and Top Gear because there were no English channels in their hotel. We can all agree that Top Gear is really a necessity.

An 18-minute program cost the man about £5,132 working out to about £300 per minute. I wager that is more money than the actors on many of the shows actually make. Vodafone says that this sort of bill is rare (really!?) and that an investigation is underway.
