Wes Brown may make more money in a week than most of us do in a year, but the Sunderland defender still collected tokens from cereal packets to get free entry to Legoland.

The footballer’s wife, Leanne Brown, 36, had been collecting the tokens on the back of Kellogg’s packets despite her husband earning a seven-figure salary.

She tweeted: ‘We made sure we stopped off at tesco and bought 3 boxes of cereal to get the buy one get one free offer at legoland saving £138!’

But despite the savings, she wasn’t impressed. Both the queues and price left her reeling.

Before entering she said: ‘Wow biggest que in the world at LegoLand! hope it’s worth it,’ but she later tweeted: ‘value for money it is not!’

Brown, 34, and his wife were taking their daughters to Legoland before the former Manchester United man settles down for the start of the Premier League season.

Sunderland enjoyed a pre-season tour in Portugal where they enjoyed mixed success. Gus Poyet’s side left with a win, draw and loss from their three
