This hilarious footage shows the moment a nine-year-old was caught red-handed sneaking downstairs at night to switch the WiFi back on so he could play Fortnite.
Jordan Squire is allowed to watch films on his PlayStation until 9pm when his mother Carley Dugmore, 36, turns the WiFi off to stop him staying up late.
One morning she noticed the WiFi was still on and set up a camera to find out who was to blame.
Mother Carley Dugmore, 36, caught her nine-year-old son Jordan Squire tiptoeing downstairs and switch on the WiFi after she disconnected it
She captured Jordan creeping out of bed one night at 10pm to turn on the Internet.
Jordan can be seen crouching at the top of the stairs and tiptoeing down at home in Winkleigh, Devon, on April 13.
He places his hand on both walls for support as he barely makes a sound creeping down the steps.
He flicks the switch at the back of the box and tiptoes back up the stairs. At the top, he pauses and looks back down the stairs.

Teaching assistant Carley said: ‘When I went to the toilet I saw the WiFi was on so I checked the video and saw he had snuck downstairs to turn it on.
‘I thought the cheeky bugger! Eventually he admitted it but he was playing innocent at first. He is definitely quite cheeky.
‘He is always up to mischief – always testing the boundaries.
After he has switched the WiFi back on, Jordan sneaks back upstairs on his tiptoes
‘He is just sneaky really. If I was giving some biscuits he would always try to take the extra biscuits.’
Jordan, nicknamed JJ, originally pinned the blame on his two older sisters, 11 and 15, claiming they made him do it.
His mum did not believe this for a second and he soon fessed up.
Jordan got the PlayStation for his birthday on April 4 and has been playing Fornite with school friends he can’t see due to lockdown.

Carley said: ‘He has got the PlayStation Network so he has been keeping in touch with people from school and he can keep in touch with friends.
‘He was sitting on his computer, he was going on to the PlayStation, he was still playing on Fortnite with his friends.
‘I gave him a chance to stay off it then thought the only option is to turn the WiFi off.’
Carley has been trying to get Jordan, who wants to play on his computer and other devices, to go outside and exercise but said it can be difficult.
She said: ‘He takes a lot of convincing. He is a typical boy wanting to sit indoors and not go out and do things.’
