Undercover Big Boss viewers were reduced to tears after watching an employee’s dream come true after being recognised for her hard work by her boss.
On Thursday evening, the latest episode of Undercover Big Boss on ITV followed Shelim Hussain MBE, the managing director of Euro Foods, as he went undercover in his firm.
Euro Foods is one of the biggest suppliers of Indian food in Europe, with Shelim paying a visit to the production team who make Samosas during the episode.
While Shelim was previously convinced that he would shut the production team’s factory, as he didn’t think their output was high enough, he later discovered firsthand how difficult it was to reach the target of making six Samosas per minute.
Shelim praised production operative Jess for being ‘so kind’ to him while he was undercover, stating: ‘She was so kind-hearted, she’s a golden-hearted girl. I never want to lose Jess.’
Jess later opened up to Shelim about her aspirations to travel across the world to help people ‘not as fortunate as us’.

After Shelim revealed his true identity to Jess, much to her amazement, he told her that not only would he not be closing the factory, but he was going to promote her to team leader and grant her a 10% pay rise.
Shelim also handed Jess a £5,000 bonus, as she tearfully explained that she had been in arrears with her rent and so the money would help her beyond her wildest expectations.

The boss then delivered the cherry on top of the cake, telling Jess that he was fulfilling her dream job to go abroad and help people in less fortunate situations.
‘For the next three years, every year, I am going to send you abroad to Bangladesh for two weeks. You’ll go and help feed a family and a child,’ he said.
As Jess cried with happiness, she said: ‘I can’t explain it, I can’t explain how I feel, it’s unbelievable.’
On Twitter, several Undercover Big Boss viewers praised Jess for her kind-hearted demeanour, with one person tweeting: ‘I knew it! Jess has got me in [tears]. What a fab employee #undercoverbigboss #bemorejess.’
‘Just watched #UndercoverBigBoss! #EuroFoodsGroup ‘s Jess was such a beautiful and pure person! So happy for her!’ someone else said, while another described her as an ‘angel’.
‘Jess on #UndercoverBigBoss is just an absolute sweetheart & a gem. We need more people like her in the world,’ another person wrote.
‘#UndercoverBigBoss This show always makes me cry. How they change people’s lives is AMAZING,’ someone else commented.
Undercover Big Boss returns next Thursday at 9pm on ITV and is available to watch on ITV Hub.
