Mum’s mind blown after two-year-old son discovers secret button on Sky box that causes your lost remote control to beep

PICTURE the scene – you've cooked dinner, done the washing up, put the kids to bed and have finally got a few hours of sofa time to look forward to.

There's just one small problem… you can't find the Sky remote anywhere.

Well rather than turning the room upside down and inside out, one woman has shared the "secret" Sky box button which will help you track it down in no time.

Sophie Laird – better known as "The Folding Lady" on TikTok – shared the life hack with her 1.4m followers last month.

She captioned the clip: "Did you know this or is it just me??"

In the video, Sophie presses the Q on her Sky box which prompts her remote (which was hiding underneath a blanket) to start beeping loudly.

Using the "mind-blown" emoji, the mum added: "MY TWO YEAR OLD TAUGHT ME THIS."

All you have to do to stop the remote from beeping is to press any random button.

According to the Sky website, the clever feature works with the newer Sky Q boxes and their Bluetooth remotes.

Needless to say, the video has racked up over 178,000 "likes" – and Sophie's followers were equally as stunned.
