More than half of Britons are feeling completely overwhelmed by the prospect of a new year of work commitments, household chores and life admin.

Research has revealed the number of times the average Brit will visit the supermarket, unload the dishwasher and take a trip to the Post Office in 2018.

Seven in 10 Brits said life admin and domestic chores got in the way of their lie - with 30% saying they were waiting for a "lucky break" to make life easier.

Two thousands adults were surveyed as part of the research, which was carried out by Currys PC World.

Ali Burford, of the company, said: "It's understandable that so many adults are feeling apprehensive about 2018 managing work, running a home and divvying out the chores is not easy.

"Heading back in to work today, as most of us are, is like starting from scratch and the mere thought of all the jobs we have to tackle in the New Year is daunting."
