60% of Brits use laptop while eating dinner

15 percent indulge in a 'PC dinner'

Nearly two thirds (60 percent) of Brits have eaten their dinner while using a laptop or PC, says SeeSaw.

Research by the online catch-up service revealed 15 percent admit they've watched TV on their PC or laptop while eating, a fad that SeeSaw calls 'PC Dinners'.

A third of those surveyed admitted they were more likely to eat their dinner while using a laptop or PC now then they were a year ago. Furthermore, 23 percent claim their PC has replaced the TV as their main source of evening entertainment while Come Dine with Me was named the most watched show while eating dinner.

''Millions of British people cannot tear themselves away from the internet, even for dinner. The growth of the PC dinner is a remarkable new trend and for many across the nation, has now replaced the traditional TV dinner," said John Keeling, platform controller for SeeSaw.

"The relentless growth of technology means that Brits now enjoy many of their programmes online and who better to eat your evening meal with than Jeremy Clarkson or the cast of EastEnders?"
